A finite element model that employs local mesh adaptation is used to calculate wind fields and pollutant transport within the Las Vegas Valley. Meteorological data collected from various country, city, and government agencies are used to generate diagnostic flow fields, which subsequently provide initial conditions for the prognostic solution of the time-dependent equations of motion and species transport.
