12 MACC Final Meeting / MACC-II Kickoff 27/02/2012 – 02/03/2012 Slide 12 First issue focused on using R-ENS as boundary conditions for nesting Use of MACC R-ENS as boundary conditions implemented succesfully Technical evaluation R-ENS dataset availability has significantly improved For all user requirements larger R-ENS area and forecast period needed Above 4km G-RG can be used as boundary conditions Limited experiments to assess need for additional variables in R-ENS Depends on chemical scheme, region, season Highest benefit shown if adding O2, Na (coarse and fine), part. SO4, ethene, PAN, HNO3, isoprene Benefit expected with more vertical levels / not shown yet PASODOBLE develops OGC interface for access to MACC products will be continued in MACC-II from M18 PASODOBLE 1st feedback note

13 MACC Final Meeting / MACC-II Kickoff 27/02/2012 – 02/03/2012 Slide 13 Downstream services linking to finer scales / specific use No SLA, but exchange of letters / joint meeting, joint staff PASODOBLE: air quality ENDORSE: renewable energies EEA / EIONET / national environmental agencies Collaboration, meetings Dedicated POLICY sub project European users EMEP, (DG-ENV) Regional environmental agencies Issues of scale and understanding core/downstream concept MACC users (1)

14 MACC Final Meeting / MACC-II Kickoff 27/02/2012 – 02/03/2012 Slide 14 Commercial users ObsAIRve as test case (SLA in preparation) Solar energy: GeoModel International science users CAMS, GURME, AMQEII, WMO, SPARC National wheather services Users registered at MACC web portal ~500 from 44 countries (23 non EU) (were ~50-100 at MACC start) MACC users (2)

15 MACC Final Meeting / MACC-II Kickoff 27/02/2012 – 02/03/2012 Slide 15 Inter-core processing chain test cases 3 parts of Mediterranean basin Assess specifics in each environmental regime for R-ENS Core-downstream test cases Nesting R-ENS to city level Post-processing of D-SAT + R-ENS PM 2.5 data Health test cases Meningitis-dust / Sahel – WMO-SDS using G-AER and D-SAT COPD forecasts for patients with R-ENS NO2 Health warnings and GIS exposure assessments with R-ENS MACC test cases

16 MACC Final Meeting / MACC-II Kickoff 27/02/2012 – 02/03/2012 Slide 16 Conclusions / downscaling (1) Mediterranean regions NO2, SO2, O3, PM10 – ~ 5 km) Catalonia Po-valley Greece Findings Mediterranean needs specific care MACC R-ENS driven regional models show finer detail Several over-estimations of O3 peaks (local emissions or circulation?) R-ENS as boundary conditions shows improved scoring (few stations) More species / levels expected to improve scoring Sensitivity tests (switch off VOCs, PM10, NH3) decrease PM10, O3 Separate tests are needed per variable Need for 2 forecasts per day

17 MACC Final Meeting / MACC-II Kickoff 27/02/2012 – 02/03/2012 Slide 17 Example nested O3 overestimation

18 MACC Final Meeting / MACC-II Kickoff 27/02/2012 – 02/03/2012 Slide 18 Conclusions / downscaling (2) City forecasts Denmark NOx, O3 street level Romania CO, SO2, NO2 0.02 deg) Findings interim 1 downscaling step needed from MACC R-ENS forecasts work generally well as with individual models used so far However, few cases of complete failure occured (specific chemistry?) Thus more species, levels are needed – but not yet specified which 2007 MACC /TNO emissions improve NO2 forecast

19 MACC Final Meeting / MACC-II Kickoff 27/02/2012 – 02/03/2012 Slide 19 Conclusions / health PM10 (daily mean) is most relevant MACC ensemble product is capable to show episodes but with under- estimated peaks and some time lag Model uncertainties are regarded less important than other confounding factors Use of MACC ensemble product for health applications requires adjustment for higher resolution Underlying correlation statistics on regions Additional local modelling added on MACC background Urbanization correction factors from in-situ/model analysis With such adjustment use of MACC for epidemiological applications was shown (forecasting, warning, exposure estimation / time activity) Sahel MACC dust forecasts useful for analysis of environmental factors leading to outbreaks of meningococis and possibly for seasonal prediction

20 MACC Final Meeting / MACC-II Kickoff 27/02/2012 – 02/03/2012 Slide 20 Example: PM10 urban exposure

21 MACC Final Meeting / MACC-II Kickoff 27/02/2012 – 02/03/2012 Slide 21 Example: COPD warning for Exeter

22 MACC Final Meeting / MACC-II Kickoff 27/02/2012 – 02/03/2012 Slide 22 Understanding + meeting user requirements needs Patience, dedication, an iterative process Dedicated pilot users / twinning pairs Pilot users / show cases need initial co-funding Increasing uptake by users depends on Long-term sustainability of services Clear communication of services (ensemble – uncertainty) Clear conditions for services (commercial, meteorological forecasts) Moving from research project to operational framework Users need Products with high and documented quality Easy access to data and documentation MACC User Interface Conclusions

23 MACC Final Meeting / MACC-II Kickoff 27/02/2012 – 02/03/2012 Slide 23 Some MACC use examples missing extreme values SolarGIS solar radiation database
