Abstract

This study shows the spatial distribution of As, Cd, Ni and Pb concentrations simulated with atmospheric modelling system of the MINNI project (AMS-MINNI). The simulations have been performed for the year 2005 with spatial resolutions of 20 km over Italy and 4 km over Northern Italy. Both anthropogenic and natural emissions have been taken into account. The simulated concentrations generally agree with available observations. The influence on heavy metal concentrations of boundary conditions, emissions from surrounding countries and horizontal resolution have been evaluated, evidencing a significant relevance of both boundary conditions and horizontal resolution.. © Crown Copyright 2014 Dstl.
