A decision support system (DSS) developed for urban air management is outlined. One of the key issues in the system is the model describing the dispersion of the pollutant in the atmosphere. A new model concept is presented, where the influence of single street canyons on the dispersion phenomena is taken into account in a simplified manner. An analysis of the town of Messina and Palermo (Sicily) indicate that the model is capable of giving qualitatively correct results. Through the construction of indicators the model results are translated and introduced in the DSS.
