Abstract

Operational air pollution forecasting and management system over Bilbao R. San Jose, I. Salas, A. Martin, J.L. Perez, A.B. Carpintero, D. Camara* & R.M. Gonzalez^ *Environmental Software and Modelling Group, Computer Science School, Technical University of Madrid, Campus de Montegancedo, Boadilla del Monte 28660 Madrid. ^Department of Meteorology and Geophysics, Complutense University of Madrid, Ciudad Universitaria, Abstract The increased importance of modelling and forecasting the air quality over urban areas has contributed to the development of more sophisticated software tools to manage urban air quality. During recent years, the use of the world wide web has also increased extraordinarily and consequently the new software technologies are linked more and more to Internet Services. In this contribution we present the application of the well known model OP ANA - a non-hydrostatic meteorological mesoscale model - based on MEMO model - and the CHEMA module
