Which program could be used to study a local micro-climate at a
potential building site. We have a building site in a valley adjacent to
a lake and want to construct a flow model to assess natural ventilation
potential.

Hello Mark,

For accurate airflow modeling in and around buildings CFD (Computational
Fluid Dynamics) tools would be most suitable. You can use commercial CFD
tools like Flovent, Fluent, Pheonix, CFX etc. or you can also use OpenSource
CFD libraries like OpenFaom.
