Research conducted in the group for Atmospheric Modelling is focused on the fundamental processes involved in atmospheric transport, chemical transformation and deposition of air pollution. The group develops and applies local to hemispheric scale air pollution models and also integrates air pollution models with environmental and health impacts, economic valuation and climate change.
Model developments and applications
This is carried out in a highly interdisciplinary environment with researchers from other fields, by coupling atmospheric models with effect models and models for the corresponding economic valuation. Furthermore, the group provides support for decision-makers in the form of impact assessments for specific emission sources, such as the agricultural sector, industry, traffic; transport of air pollution to the Arctic; climate change and air pollution interaction; weather and air pollution forecasting as well as integrated monitoring.
The aim is to provide, within the area of air pollution modelling and integrated impact assessment modelling, the highest capability in Denmark in research, development, application, teaching, talent development, public sector consultancy and decision support.
The atmospheric models developed and applied can be classified into three different groups:
