Short summary
The retrieval of a hazardous source (from a leak, terrorist attack, etc.) is an important operational issue for local authorities and health professionals in terms of security and defense. The estimation of the source parameters must therefore be precise. To ensure this, an established monitoring network must be optimal. This study presents a methodology for the optimization of a monitoring network of sensors in an urban-like environment with a view to estimating an unknown emission source.
