At the time of writing of this proposal, most European countries have imposed lockdowns to combat the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, which have forced many industries, businesses and transport networks to either close down or drastically reduce their activity. Such economic interruption, which is unprecedented in many ways, is resulting in a sudden drop of atmospheric...

The main objective of this project (MDRAF) was to describe the 3D structure of Mediterranean desert dust outbreaks and study their effects on radiation and atmospheric dynamics by means of numerical modeling (NMMB/BSC Chemical Transport model-NMMB/BSC-CTM). Moreover, the meteorological feedbacks and the forecasting accuracy of NMMB/BSCCTM when dust effects are considered were...

Climate change is for a large part governed by atmospheric processes, in particular the interaction between radiation and atmospheric components (e.g. aerosols, clouds, greenhouse and trace gases). Some of these components are also those with adverse health effects influencing air quality.

Strengthening the ground-based component of the Earth Observing...
