Project summaryThe Project is aimed to develop calculation techniques for the pollutants transport in the atmosphere and precipitation on to the ground, in terms, of their changing compositions, underlying surface heat balance, and also actual weather and terrain conditions. The Project will enable shifting the efforts of over 20 weapons scientists and specialists to the fundamental pollution control problems.
The Project activities involve the calculations for typical environments in Mordovia and Nizhny Novgorod region and procedure calibrations using mesoscale transport measurement data. These efforts as part of the integrated minion oriented program will result in more advanced methods to predict environmental pollution and techniques to estimate anthropogenous air impacts in industrial areas; their results will be of practical importance for both the above and other regions alike.
The technical approach provides for the use of advanced high-performance personal computers to develop prediction techniques for environmental pollution.
The methodology involves analyses of inpidual physical and physico-chemical contributions to pollutants formation and transport; integration of calculation techniques into a single procedure; techniques verification and validation; and development of engineering procedures and recommendations to reduce anthropogenous impact on industrial areas.
