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 emission, dispersion, and exposure 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.

Resources available for the modeling activities:

  • STEAM: ship traffic emission assessment model

  • FORE: road dust emission model

  • MPP-FMI: meteorological pre-processing model

  • UDM-FMI: dispersion model for stationary point, area and volume sources

  • CAR-FMI: line source dispersion model for road traffic emissions

  • OSPM: street canyon model

  • FMI-ENFUSER: environmental information fusion service

  • ESCAPE: expert system for consequence analysis and preparing for emergencies

  • BUOYANT: dispersion modelling of harmful substances originated from fires

  • PALM: a parallelized large-eddy simulation model for atmospheric and oceanic flows

  • SILAM: air quality and emergency modelling system

  • EXPAND: exposure model for particulate matter and nitrogen oxides
