Tracer experiment to study air flow across the AlpsFunded under: JRC-RADIOMON C
Within the Eurotrac subproject TRACT (Transport of Air Pollutants over Complex Terrain) three pre-experiments have been performed to study air flow in complex mountainous terrain: (i) in 1989 the split of the air flow between the Leventina and Blenio valley was investigated; (ii) in 1990 the overflow of the alpine barrier (Lucomagno, Gottardo, Nufenen) was studied; (iii) in 1991 the air flow across the Alps was studied in an extended area and in an opposite direction to the previous one, i.e., in a north to south transport direction. The general layout of this experiment and the first results are given here.
