Odor episodes control due to low threshold perception odorants, as H2S, is extremely difficult, as they are detected in very low concentrations. Even low odorants emissions without any health effects can derive in odor episodes, highly dependent on the changeable meteorology.PrOlor system is an environmental odor forecast system based in WRF/CALMET/CALPUFF models. WRF model settings includes four one-way nested grids, with 1x1 km2 horizontal resolution for the innermost grid, and initial and…
