The safety of the environment is among the significant difficulties in society. progressively more very important actual and chemical mechanisms are to be extra to the pollution versions. additionally, trustworthy and strong keep watch over innovations for holding toxins as a result of destructive compounds below yes secure degrees need to be constructed and utilized in a regimen manner. good established and properly analyzed huge mathematical types can effectively be used to unravel this job. using such types results in the therapy of massive computational projects. The effective resolution of such difficulties calls for mixed learn from experts operating in several fields. The NATO ARW held at Borovetz (Bulgaria), within the interval 8-12 may perhaps, 2004 used to be dedicated to the above questions. This booklet includes chosen papers of the assembly within the following themes: - bettering the talents of pollution versions to calculate trustworthy predictions of the toxins degrees in a given area and in genuine time by utilizing enough description of the actual and chemical approaches, - implementation of complex numerical tools and algorithms within the types, - effective usage of updated laptop architectures, - improvement of mechanisms for learning debris (including the following fantastic and ultra-fine particles), biogenic emissions, and so on. - optimization options within the examine of the pollutants degrees, and so on.

Sources emit SO2 only, in the air it is transformed to sulfate. The pollutant specific model parameters used are given in Table 3. 25 h. 4. CALCULATION RESULTS Monthly runs with the above mentioned sources are performed. The output consists of the following fields: monthly dry (DD), wet (WD) and total (TD) depositions, monthly concentration mean in air (CA) and additionally, monthly sum of the precipitation (CP). Then, it is easy to calculate the annual 46 total deposition (Figure 3), the mean annual surface concentration in air (Figure 4) and the mean concentration in the precipitation (Figure 5).

7 meter level might still not be within the inertial sub-layer. Observations from Sofia (20 and 40 m levels) indicate a somewhat different structure. As for BUBBLE, an increase in V w and V v is observed between the lower level (20 metres) and upper level (40 metres). For V w the change is about the same level as observed for BUBBLE, but for V v it is smaller. Furthermore, the parameterizations of V w and V v performs rather well at the upper level. Copenhagen measurements are available only at one height (115 m).

On this base, the PBL model calculates U-, U V-, V W W- and Kz-profiles at each grid point. It provides also u* and SL universal profiles necessary in SL parameterization. The roughness and the Coriolis parameter fields are pre-set additional input to the PBL model. Orography height, surface type (sea-land mask) and roughness height are to be provided for each grid location. Initial concentration field is optionally introduced (spin-up fields). 3 Sulphur parameterization and other model parameters Two species of sulphur in the air are considered: gaseous sulphur dioxide SO2 and particulate sulfate SO4=.
