This poster presents the results of research in the metropolitan areas in Mexico and Puebla valleys. The objective is assess and conduct a sensitivity analysis of meteorological conditions that could influence air pollutant transport between both valleys. The simulations were performed with CALMET v6.4 and WRF v.3.5, latter performed in the Mare Nostrum III super computer in the BSC-CNS; six days simulations considered statistically by Spearman correlations were selected in March and May months in 2012 year. It was found that WRF presented better results in domains to 9,3 and 1 km in contrast to CALMET, considering wind speed and temperature variables.
