Development and validation of a fully modular platform for numerical modelling of air pollution : POLAIR

Abstract : This paper describes a three-dimensional chemistry transport model, POLAIR, with a special focus on numerical aspects. POLAIR is a fully modular eulerian model. Several different chemical mechanisms are available, which can deal with photochemistry (Racm, Radm, etc.), continental impact (e.g. passive transport), mercury, aerosols, etc. POLAIR is designed to enable simulations from regional scales to continental scales. A few simulations at those scales have been conducted to assess and improve the code. Beyond forward simulations, inverse modelling and data assimilation can be performed, thanks to the tangent linear and adjoint versions of POLAIR, which are available through automatic differentiation.
