      Guirado, C.; Toledano, C.; Mimouni, M.; Zeudmi, L.; Baldasano Recio, José María (2014-01-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      More than 2 years of columnar atmospheric aerosol measurements (2006-2009) at the Tamanrasset site (22.79 degrees N, 5.53 degrees E, 1377 ma.s.l.), in the heart of the Sahara, are analysed. Aerosol Robotic Network (AERONET) ...

      The Eyjafjallajökull ash that crossed over Spain and Portugal on 6e12 May 2010 has been monitored by a set of operational sun photometer sites within AERONET-RIMA and satellite sensors. The sun photometer observations ...
    • Aerosols in the CALIOPE air quality modelling system: evaluation and analysis of PM levels, optical depths and chemical composition over Europe 

      Basart, Sara; Pay Pérez, M. Teresa; Jorba Casellas, Oriol; Pérez García-Pando, Carlos; Jiménez Guerrero, Pedro; Schulz, M.; Baldasano Recio, José María (2012-04-10)
      Article
      Open Access
      The CALIOPE air quality modelling system is developed and applied to Europe with high spatial resolution (12 km × 12 km). The modelled daily-to-seasonal aerosol variability over Europe in 2004 is evaluated and analysed. ...
    • Development and evaluation of the BSC-DREAM8b dust regional model over Northern Africa, the Mediterranean and the Middle East 

      Basart, Sara; Pérez García-Pando, Carlos; Nickovic, S.; Cuevas, Emilio; Baldasano Recio, José María (2012-06-12)
      Article
      Open Access
      The BSC-DREAM8b model and its predecessor are analysed in terms of aerosol optical depth (AOD) for 2004 over Northern Africa, the Mediterranean and the Middle East. We discuss the model performance and we test and analyse ...
    • EARLINET dust observations vs. BSC-DREAM8b modeled profiles: 12-year-long systematic comparison at Potenza, Italy 

      Mona, L; Papagiannopoulos, N.; Basart Alpuente, Sara; Baldasano Recio, José María; Binietoglou, I; Cornacchia, C; Pappalardo, Gelsomina (2014-01-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      In this paper, we report the first systematic comparison of 12-year modeled dust extinction profiles vs. Raman lidar measurements. We use the BSC-DREAM8b model, one of the most widely used dust regional models in the ...
    • Influència i característiques dels aerosols sobre l’atmosfera a Catalunya 

      Monteagudo Solà, Sandra (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-10-27)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      Covenantee:   Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona
      Atmospheric aerosols are made up of a set of volatile compounds that have a direct impact on human health and the environment. They move from their original place through the atmosphere following various paths to reach a ...
    • Preprojecte de millora d’una estació de vigilància d’aerosols mitjançant la supressió del continu Compton per anticoincidència 

      Hervàs Sotorres, Maurici (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2014-06)
      Master thesis (pre-Bologna period)
      Open Access
      El servei de coordinació d’activitats nuclear (SCAR) gestiona una xarxa de Vigilància Radiològica Ambiental. Amb l’ànim de mantenir la xarxa actualitzada el SCAR ha desenvolupat un equip de medició de la radioactivitat ...
    • Study of the variability and impact on optical properties calculation of mineral dust aerosols 

      Vicaría Aguilar, Alejandra (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2020-01-15)
      Bachelor thesis
      Restricted access - author's decision
      Radiative forcing on the atmosphere due to mineral dust aerosols plays a key role in climate change. This results from dust optical properties, more specifically the Single Scattering Albedo (SSA), which is a key aerosol ...
