Chile is a country that has different industrial activities generating annoying odors for the communities that live in the surroundings. It seeks to determine the area of impact caused by odors, for which measurements are made with suitable panelists (according to the established in the chilean normative NCh3190: 2010).
To determine the area of impact, plume measurements are made in accordance to VDI 3940 part 2. On the other hand, the mathematical model of atmospheric dispersion CALPUFF fed with emissions measured by dynamic olfactometry is applied.
