This work shows preliminary results for heavy metals concentrations simulated with the atmospheric modelling system (AMS) of the MINNI project. The simulation has been carried out for the year 2005 with a horizontal resolution of 25 km. The simulated concentrations of As, Cd, Ni and Pb have, in general, the highest values in urban and industrial areas and compare well with available measurements.
