D4.2 Assessment of plume model performance

Erik Koene & Dominik Brunner (Empa)

This deliverable is the result of an assessment of five high-resolution transport models (COSMO-GHG, ICON-ART, LOTOS-EUROS, MicroHH, WRF-CHEM) to simulate the plume from three large coal-fired power stations, a steel plant, and three (conglomerate) city plumes.
The simulated results are compared against observations (in-situ airplane observations for two power plant cases and one city case are available; in-situ ICOS and other high-precision
CO2 measurements are available for two city cases; 43 NO2 measuring stations are available for a city case; TROPOMI images are available for all cases), as well as amongst each other.
