Air quality modelling :

The purpose of this part is to predict, by using different types of models, the evolution of air pollutants concentration (sulfur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, carbon monoxide, dust and the ozone).


The modeling can be:

  • statistic: by trying to find a correlation between the pollutant to be predicted and the environmental parameters, (you’ll find below how the ozone predictability is defined) or
  • numerical: at this level, the modeling provides a unique setting for the overview of all the dynamical, physical and chemical processes coupled in the stratosphere and the troposphere (you’ll find below the Mocage study and the Perle(Pearl) study).
