We are currently experiencing technical difficulties with weather forecasts. We are sorry for any inconvenience.

Atmospheric Dispersion Modelling

The group is involved in modelling of atmospheric compounds in micro to global scales. The group develops and evaluates the full range of air pollution dispersion, exposure, and emission models, and other mathematical modelling techniques (such as CFD modelling). The models are used in international and national projects as well as operational air pollution forecasting.



Emphasis on specific research areas

- Computational fluid dynamics

- Accidents involving hazardous materials

- Local air quality modeling

- Regional air quality modeling

- Air quality forecasts

- Environmental information fusion service

- Surveying maritime emissions

- Urban boundary layer network
