Abstract

Haifa Bay, located on the Eastern Mediterranean, is densely populated by industrial facilities alongside inhabitants. The area is characterized by a complex terrain, mainly due to Mt. Carmel which rises up to 450 - 500 m (asl) over a short distance from the coast. The atmospheric models RAMS and HYPACT were employed with 0.5 km resolution on an air pollution episode over the domain. Simulated data of surface and upper air concentration profiles revealed a significant spatial and temporal variability over the domain, more complex than could be captured by the monitoring network.
