Abstract

Development of a tool for air pollution management and emergency response (MISTRAL project) F. Gassman," W. Feller/ P. Kaufmann," V. Megariti," K. Kamber/ M. Muntwiler/ N. Moussiopoulos* * Environmental and Systems Analysis Lab., Paul Scherrer Institute, CH-5232 Villigen PSI, Switzerland *Suiselectra Engineering AG, CH-4002 Basel, Switzerland * Department of Mechanical Engineering, Aristotle University, GR-54006 Thessaloniki, Greece ABSTRACT On the basis of a network of 50 anemometers and two SODAR systems, a windfield climatology of the densely populated and highly industrialized re- gion of Basel is being established A trajectory-based classification of wind- fields is presented Such a classification is a crucial prerequisite for the deve- lopment of an easy to use system for the calculation of emission fields using transfer coefficients calculated with a Monte Carlo diffusion model. Appli- cations of this system are investigations of air hygienic aspects of town plan- ning as wel
