OSPM® is a practical street pollution model, developed by the Department of Environmental Science at Aarhus University (the former National Environmental Research Institute, Department of Atmospheric Environment).

New PhD position, deadline 15 July 2015

We are inviting potential PhD candidates to apply for a PhD project on OSPM / personal exposure modelling. The candidate should have a Master’s degree in Physics, Chemistry or Engineering or a closely related field and preferred experiences are in:

  • Atmospheric dispersion of pollutants
  • Programming Languages (Fortran, C++, Python etc.)
  • Geographic Information Systems (GIS)

We refer to Aarhus University web page for a more detailed description. The project will be conducted two years in Denmark and one year in Qatar. Please contact us by July 15th if you are planning to apply to have some time to interact with you before the final submission deadline August 1st.

OSPM e-mail list

The former mailing list was closed we saved all the registered e-mails and working on a new solution for sending out OSPM news to all registered users.

Description of the OSPM model

Look here for a brief illustrated overview of the OSPM model with a reference list.

WinOSPM is a central part of the human exposure modelling system AirGIS.

A structured description can also be found in the Model Documentation System (MDS) of the European Topic Centre on Air and Climate Change (ETC/ACC) of the European Environmental Agency (EEA). You may either browse the whole data base or go directly to the OSPM description.

Evaluation version

A free evaluation version (Version 5.1.90, dated March 30, 2007)
of WinOSPM (OSPM with a Windows user interface) can be downloaded.

OSPM validation tool

Access to tool designed for validation of results from the OSPM model. The tool is suitable for exploratory analysis of OSPM model performance. The use of the tool is described in a brief manual and a conference paper.
