Technical note: The Lagrangian particle dispersion model FLEXPART version 6.2
The Lagrangian particle dispersion model FLEX- PART was originally (about 8 years ago) designed for calcu- lating the long-range and mesoscale dispersion of air pollu- tants from point sources, suchExpand

Validation of the lagrangian particle dispersion model FLEXPART against large-scale tracer experiment data
Abstract A comprehensive validation of FLEXPART, a recently developed Lagrangian particle dispersion model based on meteorological data from the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts, isExpand

Computation, accuracy and applications of trajectories—A review and bibliography
To the authors knowledge, there exists no recent review paper on the computation and use of trajectories. To fill this gap, this study summarizes the current knowledge on the calculation andExpand

Characteristics of atmospheric transport into the Arctic troposphere
[1] The Lagrangian particle dispersion model FLEXPART was used to construct a global data set of 1.4 million continuous trajectories. At the model start, particles were distributed homogeneously inExpand

Xenon-133 and caesium-137 releases into the atmosphere from the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant: determination of the source term, atmospheric dispersion, and deposition
On 11 March 2011, an earthquake occurred about 130 km off the Pacific coast of Japan's main island Honshu, followed by a large tsunami. The resulting loss of electric power at the Fukushima Dai-ichiExpand

A 1‐year Lagrangian “climatology” of airstreams in the northern hemisphere troposphere and lowermost stratosphere
This paper presents a 1-year “climatology” of airstreams, based on a large number of three-dimensional air parcel trajectories started daily from points on a grid covering the Northern HemisphereExpand

Black carbon in the Arctic: the underestimated role of gas flaring and residential combustion emissions
Abstract. Arctic haze is a seasonal phenomenon with high concentrations of accumulation-mode aerosols occurring in the Arctic in winter and early spring. Chemistry transport models and climateExpand

Interpolation Errors in Wind Fields as a Function of Spatial and Temporal Resolution and Their Impact on Different Types of Kinematic Trajectories
Abstract This paper discusses some of the uncertainties that influence kinematic trajectory calculations. The interpolation errors due to different interpolation schemes are examined by degradingExpand

Arctic Air Pollution: Origins and Impacts
Notable warming trends have been observed in the Arctic. Although increased human-induced emissions of long-lived greenhouse gases are certainly the main driving factor, air pollutants, such asExpand

Cesium-137 deposition and contamination of Japanese soils due to the Fukushima nuclear accident
The largest concern on the cesium-137 (137Cs) deposition and its soil contamination due to the emission from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) showed up after a massive quake on MarchExpand
