Working groups 2 and 4 of the COST Action ES1004 jointly initiated a collaborative modeling exercise for two case studies in the year 2010 with high aerosol loads. This activity complements the simulations performed for AQMEII phase 2 by enabling more detailed insight into specific feedback processes and their representation in different models.
The two cases identified are
a) Russian forest fires in July/August 2010 (period 25 July-15 August 2010)
b) Saharan dust episode in October 2010 (period 2 -15 October)
Details on the setup of the simulations are provided in the following document:
