      A reliable emissions inventory is highly important for air quality modelling applications, especially at regional or local scales, which require high resolutions. Consequently, higher resolution emission inventories have ...
    • A coupled macroscopic traffic and pollutant emission modelling system for Barcelona 

      Rodríguez Rey, Daniel; Guevara Vilardell, Marc; Linares Herreros, María Paz; Casanovas Garcia, Josep; Salmeron Moya, Juan; Soret Miravet, Albert; Jorba Casellas, Oriol; Tena Medina, Carles; Pérez García-Pando, Carlos (2021-03)
      Article
      Open Access
      We present a coupled macroscopic traffic and emission modelling system tailored to the Barcelona metropolitan area that allows estimating hourly road transport emissions at road link level. We use the developed system to ...
    • Air quality forecasts on a kilometer-scale grid over complex Spanish terrains 

      Pay Pérez, M. Teresa; Martínez Palau, Francesc; Guevara Vilardell, Marc; Baldasano Recio, José María (2014-09-08)
      Article
      Open Access
      The CALIOPE Air Quality Forecast System (CALIOPE-AQFS) represents the current state of the art in air quality forecasting systems of high-resolution running on high-performance computing platforms. It provides a 48 h ...
    • An Improved system for modelling Spanish emissions: HERMESv2.0 

      Guevara Vilardell, Marc; Martínez Palau, Francesc; Arevalo Roa, Gustavo; Gassó Domingo, Santiago; Baldasano Recio, José María (2013-12)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      Emission models play a key role in the development of high-resolution air quality modelling systems AQMS.To minimise the uncertainty presented by these models,it is essential to match the highresolution requirements of ...
    • Implementation of plume rise and its impacts on emissions and air quality modelling 

      Guevara Vilardell, Marc; Arevalo Roa, Gustavo; Soret Miravet, Albert; Martínez Farré, Francesc Xavier; Baldasano Recio, José María (2014-12-01)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      This work analyses the impact of implementing hourly plume rise calculations over Spain in terms of: i) vertical emission allocations and ii) modelled air quality concentrations. Two air quality simulations (4 km x 4 km, ...
    • Improving maritime traffic emission estimations on missing data with CRBMs 

      Gutiérrez Torre, Alberto; Berral García, Josep Lluís; Buchaca Prats, David; Guevara Vilardell, Marc; Soret, Albert; Carrera Pérez, David (Elsevier, 2020-07-07)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      Maritime traffic emissions are a major concern to governments as they heavily impact the Air Quality in coastal cities. Ships use the Automatic Identification System (AIS) to continuously report position and speed among ...
    • Integrated assessment of air pollution using observations and modelling in Santa Cruz de Tenerife (Canary Islands) 

      Baldasano Recio, José María; Soret Miravet, Albert; Guevara Vilardell, Marc; Martínez Palau, Francesc; Gassó Domingo, Santiago (2014-03-01)
      Article
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      The present study aims to analyse the atmospheric dynamics of the Santa Cruz de Tenerife region (Tenerife, Canary Islands). This area is defined by the presence of anthropogenic emissions (from a refinery, a port and road ...
    • Inter-comparison between HERMESv2.0 and TNO-MACC-II emission data using the CALIOPE air quality system (Spain)
