Part of the NATO Science Series book series (NAIV, volume 30)


The development of Estonian mesoscale air pollution model was initiated in the beginning of 2001 under the broader research theme “Climate forcing factors and dynamical weather forecast”, intended to non-hydrostatic modelling of the atmospheric dynamics and apply it in the HIRLAM weather forecast model (Estonian HIRLAM team, University of Tartu). The theme is funded by the Estonian Scientific Competence Council.
