Systematization of footprint models for practical applications

BaCaTEC (Georgia)

From 01/2010 to 12/2010

Principal Investigator: Thomas Foken

Footprint modelling is an increasingly used tool in meteorology and environmental sciences. This type of models links source areas near the surface to measuring points or regions in the lower portion of the atmosphere influenced by source areas upwind. This topic is of paramount importance in upscaling point gaseous concentration and flux measurements to a larger upwind source area; in data quality analysis of, for instance, the worldwide carbon flux measurements network used in greenhouse gas control and regional and national budget; and wind power use in complex terrain. The applicant’s goal is to publish a book chapter with clear instructions on the practical and effective use of the different footprint models to facilitate a more extensive use of footprint models related to numerous practical issues of high environmental priority like air pollution, greenhouse gas control, wind power use etc.
