Enhancing regional air quality models to study fate and transport of persistent organic pollutants

Research Centre for Toxic Compounds in the Environment (Recetox)


The collaboration focuses on understanding the processes, important for geographical distribution of persistent organic pollutants in an environment, and time trends of their concentration. A self-learning automated system for iterative parametrization of chemical transport model (CMAQ) is being developed by CERIT-SC, which aims to improve an estimation of initial burden of additional compartments (e.g., soil, water). The overall goal is to improve the correlation of the modelling system results with real measurements performed by active monitoring stations, and thus to understand the pollution processes better.
