SCIENTIFIC ACTIVITY

 

            The scientific activity covered, both from experimental and modelling points of view, many aspects of the Planetary Boundary Layer (PBL) Physics and of Environmental Physics with a particular attention devoted to the spatial-temporal evolution of the more important physical phenomena occurring in the PBL and to the dispersion properties of the atmosphere at the various scales as a function of the various anemological and thermodynamic conditions. During the last 15 years the study included, in particular, the development and validation of Lagrangian stochastic models capable of simulating the atmospheric turbulent dispersion either in flat or in complex terrain at the various spatial and temporal scales.

b. -       Analysis of environmental and meteorological series of data

c -        Atmospheric turbulence

d. -      Diffusion tracer experiments
