Abstract (Περίληψη)

Air pollution is one of the biggest problems mankind faces in modern times because it has an impact on human health and contributes to climate change. In the present study, the three-dimensional PMCAMx model was used to simulate dust concentrations in the European atmosphere. PMCAMx was applied over Europe for the period of May 2008 and we compared predictions with observed values in order to estimate dust emissions in the European atmosphere. In addition, the effects of dust on other inorganic atmospheric particles were studied.
