Challenges and opportunities for open LOTOS-EUROS model to reproduce the dynamics for Tropical Andes Domain. Santiago Lopez Restrepo
Abstract: In this presentation is exposed the challenges and opportunities to model the chemical dynamics on Tropical Andes Domain through LOTOS-EUROS model, particularly to the understanding of Air Quality recent problems in Colombia. Improving the capability of modeling the behavior and dynamics of the pollutants in the atmosphere is one of the main goals of the meteorological and air quality community. Few works about the implementation of air quality models on South Americ have been developed, most of these over Southern South America (South of Brasil and Perú, Argentina and Chile). Through analysis and comparison between the LOTOS-EUROS outputs and data retrieved from ensembles and reanalysis from Copernicus Project (ECMWF, MACC2), is presented the challenges and opportunities for the successful implementation and development of LOTOS-EUROS model as an alternativet o model the dynamics of pollutants on Tropical Andes Domain.
