FLEXPART is a model for atmospheric transport representing the Lagrangian trajectories of a large number of particles in the atmosphere.
These particles, that can be tracked forward or backwards in time, are driven by Eulerian wind fields such as those produced by 3D meteorological models.
Applications include the assessment of
- the impact of pollutant releases on air quality,
- ozone depletion substances,
- nuclear power plant accidents and other nuclear activities involving the release of radionuclides,
- greenhouse gases emissions,
Flexpart is a free software, the community site http://flexpart.eu provides more detailed information.
