Welcome at the pages of the MEDARD project. You will find here weather forecast for Europe and the Czech Republic. We also provide forecasts of concentrations of some pollutants, especially tropospheric ozone. The project has arisen in the Institute of Computer Science under support of the European Union (Project APPETISE), the Grant Agency of the Czech Republic. We have been supported by the Grant Agency of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Rep. and the Ministry of Environment of the Czech Rep.
The weather forecast is based on the numeric weather prediction model WRF of NCAR. For a detailed information see the Homepage of WRF. The forecasts of pollutant concentration is done with the help of the Chemistry transport model CAMx (ENVIRON Corp.). The emisson model is based on the emission processor SMOKE (US EPA).
