The influence of wind is an important part of the bioclimatic town planning criteria. Ventilating and mechanical action of the wind towards reduction of air pollution in urban areas is becoming increasingly important and must be analyzed along with other factors such as · thermal losses, comfort etc. Numerous errors committed in overlooking the ecological factor and the role of the wind in the siting of residential districts and industrial plants in Belgrade point to the need for a better organized, multidisciplinary research in this area, including the production of basic topoclimatological maps and the establishment of an adequate network of stations recording air pollutants and wind characteristics.
