This paper describes the atmospheric dispersion modeling using radionuclides for a hypothesis plant in the central region of Iran. pollutants concentration is estimated by using a mathematical Gaussian plume model in Meso Scale based on 5-year meteorological data such as speed and direction wind, temperature, absolute humidity, stability classes and mixing layer height. This modeling is done first time in central region of Iran. Meteorological data has measured directly from automatic meteorology station in 2003 to 2008. The computation points are done up to 50 km in 16 geographical directions. The results indicate pollutants concentration is under the authorized limit and there is not any threat for people and environment.
