1 Applications of KAMM Temuco, Chile Rodrigo Delgado Urzúa Universidad de La Frontera Temuco, Chile Workshop FONDECYT La Serena, November 2004

2 KAMM / CMCC Meteorology Temuco  Researchers: Dr. Sonia Montecinos Dr. Jaime Bustos M. Sc. Jesús Ruiz  Students: Luis Machuca Gabriel Toro Luis Cortes Rodrigo Delgado …

3 Pollution Temuco  High concentrations of PM10 in winter (mar-sep)  Peaks of 800 μgr/m 3, 24h concentrations peaks of 270 μgr/m 3 (1)  92% of the emissions come from houses (2)

4 KAMM-DRAIS Model Input  Meteorological Data: NCEP/NCAR Reanalysis  Emissions data: no data, estimations based in a 1996 study ~ 330 ton/year  Soil-use data: estimated  Soil water content data: estimated  Topographical data: taken from internet databases

5 Germany results

7 Temuco Project  Universidad de La Frontera Center for Modeling and Scientific Computation + Faculty of Engineering, Sciences and Administration + Department of Physics Sciences  DIDUFRO: Estudio de la Meteorología de la IX Región en Condiciones de Invierno (Meteorological study of IX Region in winter conditions)

8 Temuco Project: Objectives  Make a characterization of a “ meteorologically typical ” winter day  Understand the outputs generated by KAMM  Graphical representation of the model output data

9 Computational Adaptation of the Model Germany: Vector computer (VPP) Temuco: High-End PC (x86 platform, 2.0 GHz, 2 GB RAM)  Only meteorological model running, dispersion section (DRAIS) not yet implemented  Grid: 144x114 (2x2 Km 2 ), 25 levels

10 Temuco: Work in progress  Better knowledge about the model: Routine documentation How-to-run manuals How-to-make-graphics (in GrADS) manuals  Improved input data: Data mining GIS-helped soil data

11 Temuco results Graphics done with Matlab TopographicSoil type

12 Temuco results Wind’s direction angle

13 Temuco results

14 Forthcoming work / cooperation  Tool for discovering/studying potential “wind farms” sites  Campaign of measurements in Temuco, University of Stockholm (mar-jul 2005)  Better residential emissions inventory/estimations

15 Questions?  Thanks for your attention!
