The APM RG aims to create and disseminate knowledge on fundamental physics of meteorology and climate, atmospheric pollutant emissions, fluxes, transformation and deposition, and modelling and monitoring of atmospheric processes. Its key priority areas are climate change assessment, including mitigation and adaptation aspects, urban air quality, and impacts of atmospheric emissions (e.g. biomass burning, agriculture, and shipping emissions).
The APM RG researchers work towards a common objective, which is to assess and produce knowledge on atmospheric processes at different scales (from global to local) using modelling and measuring approaches. Numerical modelling activities are complemented with physical modelling in a wind tunnel. Human exposure to atmospheric pollutants (indoor and outdoor) is assessed and included in local and urban models. Climate change impacts on air pollution and on human health are also addressed.
