Abstract

Application of a non-hydrostatic mesoscale meteorological model to the Aveiro Region, Portugal M. Coutinho," T. Flassak,* C. Borrego" ^Department of Environmental and Planning, University of Aveiro, 3800 Aveiro, Portugal ^Institute of Technical Thermodynamics, University of Karlsruhe, D-7500 Karlsruhe 1, Germany ABSTRACT A meteorological campaign was performed around the Aveiro lagoon with the aim of studying the developmemt of the sea breeze circulation. The mesoscale meteorological model MEMO, is being applied to this region. The results of a simulation without geostrophic forcing are presented. INTRODUCTION During the last 5 years, the University of Aveiro has directed a significant interest towards the analysis of regional air quality problems*. The major goal is the study of atmospheric dispersion patterns and particularly the analysis of photochemical pollution episodes, through the application of adequate dispersion modeling techniques at an interregional s
