FLEXPART smoke forecast

PI Stavros Solomos
Participant National Observatory of Athens

The FLEXPART-WRF particle dispersion model is implemented in an experimental setup for the description of smog formation over the greater Athens area. For this purpose we assume daily fireplace emissions to last between 18:00-00:00 UTC. The dispersion of smoke is governed by the atmospheric conditions as described by WRF-ARW model at a horizontal resolution of 4x4 km

Instrument activity


The campaign is organized and funded through the ACTRIS, the European Research Infrastructure for the observation of Aerosol, Clouds, and Trace gases.
