Polyphemus is a modeling system for air quality. As such, it is designed to yield up-to-date simulations in a reliable framework: data assimilation, ensemble forecast and daily forecasts. Its completeness makes it suitable for use in many applications: photochemistry, aerosols, radionuclides, etc. It is able to handle simulations from local to continental scales, with several physical models. It is divided into three main parts:
Fig. 1 depicts a typical result produced by Polyphemus.
Clime is involved in the overall design of the system and in the development of advanced methods in model coupling, data assimilation and uncertainty quantification (through model drivers and post-processing).
