Urban air pollution is associated with significant adverse health effects. Model-based abatement strategies are required and developed for the growing urban populations. In the initial development stage, these are focussed on ex-ceedances of air quality standards caused by high short-term pollutant concentrations. Prediction of health effects and(More)
There are objects with some periods of higher than normal levels of risk of accidental atmospheric releases (nuclear , chemical, biological, etc.). Such accidents or events may occur due to natural hazards, human errors, terror acts, and during transportation of waste or various operations at high risk. A methodology for risk assessment is suggested and it(More)
Numerical models that combine weather forecasting and atmospheric chemistry are here referred to as chemical weather forecasting models. Eighteen operational chemical weather forecasting models on regional and continental scales in Europe are described and compared in this article. Topics discussed in this article include how weather forecasting and(More)
This discussion paper is/has been under review for the journal Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics (ACP). Please refer to the corresponding final paper in ACP if available. Abstract The impact of climate change on surface ozone over Europe was studied using four offline regional chemistry transport models (CTMs) and one online regional integrated(More)
The increased resolution of numerical weather prediction models allows nowadays addressing more specifically urban meteorology and air pollution processes and forecasts. This has triggered new interest in modelling and describing experimentally the specific features and processes of urban areas. Recent developments and results per-5 formed within the(More)
The strategy of new generation integrated Meso-Meteorological (MetM) and Atmospheric Chemical Transport (ACT) models for predicting atmospheric composition, meteorology and climate change is discussed for the Enviro-HIRLAM (HIgh Resolution Limited Area Model) integrated system. Current progress in the Enviro-HIRLAM system development and its urban on-line(More)
Large eddy simulation of urban features A. Mahura et al. Large eddy simulation of urban features A. Mahura et al. Abstract The large eddy simulations employing the SUBMESO model with the urban soil layer model SM2-U were performed for the model domain covering the Danish Island of Sealand and including the Copenhagen metropolitan area.
