Studying Pollution Levels in Bulgaria by Using a Fine Resolution Dispersion Model

  • Zahari Zlatev
  • Dimiter Syrakov


The Danish Eulerian Model (DEM) is described in Zlatev (1995). A new version of the model is used in this study. The space domain of this and old versions contains the whole of Europe. However, this domain is now discretized on a 480×480 grid (10×10 km grid-squares). Comparisons with the original version (50×50 km grid-squares) runs are also made as to show the advantages of the refinement.
