CHIMERE : vers la modélisation de la qualité de l’air à l’échelle du globe

Abstract : Ineris operates and develops the CHIMERE chemistry transport model which is now widely used throughout Europe and beyond for air quality forecasting and assessment. Ineris also relies on this model for operational air quality forecasting in France through the platform, but also in Europe for the Copernicus Atmospheric Monitoring Service. A new version of the model has been completed in 2017 that allows to reach out to global air quality modeling. Taking the opportunity of the 2016 computing challenge of the new high performance computer of the Centre de Calcul Recherche et Technologie, unprecedented air quality simulations was performed by Ineris over the northern hemisphere at an outstanding resolution of 10 km. The modeling results offer an excellent illustration of the global air quality issue, where fine knowledge of physics and chemistry is required over the main polluted areas that also affect the wider atmosphere throughout the globe.
