dc.description.abstractThis work describes the pollution plumes of seven Spanish coal power plants under the most typical meteorological conditions that affect the Iberian Peninsula at synoptic scale. The aim is to understand how meteorology modulates the plume dynamics (length, altitude, orientation) and their contribution to NO2 and SO2 surface concentration. Using the BSC-ES operational air quality forecasting system (CALIOPE-AQFS), the behavior of the plumes is analyzed for a representative day of each of the six most common synoptic situations. The results show that the plumes from Atlantic facilities are mainly driven by synoptic conditions whereas for power plants located over the Mediterranean and on mountainous regions, mesoscale dynamics dominate. Moreover, when the injection of the pollutants is done within the planetary boundary layer there is an increase in the NO2 and SO2 surface concentrations close to (<15-20 km) the sources.
