Abstract

The University of Aveiro is concerned with the implementation of an advanced scheme for the simulation of turbulence within the non-hydrostatic mesoscale model MEMO. The main goal of this paper is to investigate the effect of vertical non-local turbulent mixing in the formation and development of mesoscale processes using the transilient turbulent theory (TTT). The MEMO version which includes TTT was applied to the Aveiro region: Results of this application were compared with results of a meteorological campaign. Simulations included the dispersion of a passive pollutant released by a paper-mill plant. 1 Introduction The original version of the non-hydrostatic prognostic mesoscale model MEMO was de
