Aeolian Dust over the Mediterranean

Simulation of Dust Emission and Transport over Europe and the Mediterranean in September 2015 by the Cyprus Institute Atmospheric & Climate Modelling Group.

Simulation using WRF-Chem, the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model coupled with Chemistry. The model simulates the emission, transport, mixing, and chemical transformation of trace gases and aerosols simultaneously with the meteorology. The model is used for investigation of regional-scale air quality, field program analysis, and cloud-scale interactions between clouds and chemistry.
