The study of the evolution of atmospheric emissions is essential for the control of pollution and the selection of the countermeasures. The circulation of air masses is particularly difficult to estimate in the presence of complex terrains, containing mountains and hills or large water basins. The city of Athens presents both these features, so that the simulation of the general features of the Athens basin is particularly challenging. In this paper two completely different models are employed to describe the typical summer sea-breeze in the region of Athens. Preliminary results of the comparison of the model results with the temperature and wind measurements are presented.
