The NILU Atmospheric Backward Transport Analysis Products
by Andreas Stohl
What this site is about
This site presents a resource to interpret transport processes and how they influenced recent measurements taken at the Summit, Greenland, station. It attempts to replace trajectory calculations -- the major tool used so far for that purpose -- with quantiative dispersion model runs including full turbulence and convection parameterizations. The plots shown are from backward model runs using the FLEXPART model. A description of the various products derived from the backward runs can be found here.
Backward modeling products are available for the following months:
