Abstract

A nested version of the mesoscale meteorological model MEMO is applied to the Greater Lisbon Area. The simulation comprises three nested domains of resolutions 5x5 km-, 2x2 kirr and 1 x 1 knf centered over the city of Lisbon. This paper includes a description of the wind fields calculated for the medium and fine grid as well as vertical cross sections of the medium grid. Results enhance the importance of using fine simulations to depict the characteristics of the flow field in a area of such complexity. 1 Introduction The Greater Lisbon Area (GLA), with a total population of 3.5 million inhabitants, was chosen for this study taking into account the geographical distribution of the main i
