Abstract

The European Zooming Model (EZM) is applied to simulate wind flow and air pollutant transport and transformation in the Greater Thessaloniki area (GTA). Quadruply nested grid simulations of the wind flow are performed for periods in the midst of the Thessaloniki '91 Field Measurement Campaign. Subsequently, pollutant transport and transformation is simulated by a robust one-way nesting algorithm, the resolution of the fine grid being as low as 500 m. The latter simulations are based on an emissions inventory characterised by fine spatial allocation and a high temporal resolution. The results show that sea breeze
