Meteosim’s Technical team has produced a new research paper dealing with photochemical models applied over urban areas
Meteosim, in collaboration with the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC) and the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (ULPGC), published an interesting article in which it analyses and evaluates the coupling between a photochemical model and a model of finite elements of application on air quality. This study was previously presented at the prestigious HARMO congress (www.harmo.org) in its 2017 edition.
A simulation has been carried out in the surroundings of Barcelona, where an important contributor to the sulphur dioxide levels is considered. The simulations were carried out for one episode with high levels of sulphur dioxide. The time period of the simulation was 48 hours with a 24-hour spin-up.
