It is proposed to carry out this project with the following broad themes: I - meteorological aspects in the Greater São Paulo Region during the winter, II - the atmospheric circulation in São Paulo and transport of zone: simulation of the photochemical production of pollutants; III - the study of pollutants in the aerosol phase, the study of the species of primary and secondary origin including processes of removal; IV - the study of the influence of anticyclone blocking on the winter conditions in the State of São Paulo; V - the atmospheric aerosol and its interaction with solar irradiance in São Paulo.
