Numerical modeling of the transport and of atmospheric processes acting on gases and aerosols from biomass burnings in South America


Project to study transport and transformation of aerosols and gases in the atmosphere of South America. The study is envisaged through means of numerical modeling using (Eulerian and Lagrangean) models of transport, atmospheric model of meso-scale and model of physics of aerosols. The Eulerian model coupled to the atmospheric model will enable the 3D simulation of the mass distribution of these contaminants, and the implementation of the aerosols model on the mesoscale model will enable the investigation of the interaction of these with the evolution of the atmospheric state on a regional scale. Several refinements in the methodology developed by the proponent are planed. Observational data obtained locally and remotely will be used for a continuous validation of the methodology and proposed studies. (AU)
