Integrated Systems for Forecasting Urban Meteorology, Air Pollution and Population Exposure (FUMAPEX ) Integrated Systems for Forecasting Urban Meteorology, Air Pollution and Population Exposure (FUMAPEX ) Alexander Baklanov, Danish Meteorological Institute, and the FUMAPEX consortium Workshop on Real time air pollution data exchange and forecast in Europe EEA, Copenhagen, 7-8 April 2005
METEOROLOGICAL ADVANCES AND SYSTEMS FOR URBAN AIR QUALITY FORECASTING Modern numerical weather prediction (NWP) and meso- meteorological models (MetM) able to resolve urban-scale processes are considered to be the main tools in future urban air pollution (UAP) forecasting because they allow for sufficiently high spatial and temporal resolution and can trace back the linkages between sources and impacts. Improved urban meteorology and suggested nesting MetM-UAP integrated strategy are discussed. This work is realised as a part of the activities within the EC FUMAPEX project.
Two levels of the integration strategy: Off-line integration of Urban Meteorology, Air Pollution and Population Exposure models for urban air pollution forecast and emergency preparedness, which is the FUMAPEX aim. On-line integration of meso-scale meteorological models and atmospheric aerosol & chemical transport models (CTM) with consideration of the feedbacks of air pollution (e.g. urban aerosols) on meteorological processes and urban climate. This direction is developed at DMI and considered in the new COST Action 728. This will lead to a new generation of models for chemical weather forecasting.
5FP EC project FUMAPEX: Integrated Systems for Forecasting Urban Meteorology, Air Pollution and Population Exposure 22 teams from 10 European countries are involved Project objectives: (i) the improvement of meteorological forecasts for urban areas, (ii) the connection of NWP models to urban air quality (UAQ) and population exposure (PE) models, (iii) the building of improved Urban Air Quality Information and Forecasting Systems (UAQIFS), and (iv) their application in cities in various European climates.
FUMAPEX target cities for improved UAQIFS implementation #1 – Oslo, Norway #2 – Turin, Italy #3 – Helsinki, Finland #4 – Valencia/Castellon, Spain #5 – Bologna, Italy #6 – Copenhagen, Denmark Different ways of the UAQIFS implementation: (i)urban air quality forecasting mode, (ii) urban management and planning mode, (iii) public health assessment and exposure prediction mode, (iv) urban emergency preparedness system.
Shortcomings of existing NWP: Despite the increased resolution of existing operational NWP models, urban and non-urban areas mostly contain similar sub-surface, surface, and boundary layer formulation. These do not account for specifically urban dynamics and energetics and their impact on the numerical simulation of the ABL and its various characteristics (e.g. internal boundary layers, urban heat island, precipitation patterns). Higher grid resolution / downscaling / nesting Improved Urban physiographic data / Land use / RS data Calculation of urban effective roughness Calculation of urban heat fluxes Urban canopy model Mixing height in urban areas Urban measurement assimilation in NWP models Urban Scale NWP modeling needs:
Current regulatory (dash line) and suggested (solid and dash lines) ways for systems of forecasting of urban meteorology for UAQIFS Release / Emission Data Meteorological observations Global / Regional NWP models Limited area NWP Meso-meteorological models (e.g. non-hydrostatic) Local scale models Meteo preprocessors, Interfaces Urban Air Pollution and Emergency Preparedness models Resolution:Models, e.g.: 15 kmECMWF/HIRLAM,GME 1-5 kmLM,HIRLAM, > 0.1 kmMM5, RAMS, LM ~ 1-10 mCFD, LES, box models

COST 728: Enhancing meso-scale meteorological modelling capabilities for air pollution and dispersion applications ( ) WG2: Integrated systems of MetM and CTM: strategy, interfaces and module unification WG2 overall aim - to identify the requirements for the unification of MetM and CTM/ADM modules and to propose recommendations for a European strategy for integrated mesoscale modelling capability. WG2 activities will include: Forecasting models Assessment models
Why we need to build the European integration strategy? European mesoscale MetM/NWP communities: ECMWF HIRLAM COSMO ALADIN/AROME UM WRF MM5 RAMS European CTM/ADMs: a big number problem oriented not harmonised (??) ….. NWP models are not primarily developed for CTM/ADMs and there is no tradition for strong co-operation between the groups for meso/local-scale the conventional concepts of meso- and urban-scale AQ forecasting need revision along the lines of integration of MetM and CTM US example (The models 3, WRF-Chem) A number of European models … A universal modelling system (like ECMWF in EU or WRF-Chem in US) ??? an open integrated system with fixed architecture (module interface structure)
