Weather forecasting and air pollution modelling (application)

The air pollution application provides a high performance air quality simulation executing the STEM-II (Sulphur Transport Eulerian Model 2) program on a Grid platform. The MPI parallel version of the model, previously developed by our research group, was ported to the Grid by making use of the other CrossGrid components. Besides, the Grid enabled version was enhanced with a graphical user interface that provides interactivity features, and the inclusion of a fault tolerance mechanism based on check pointing. The main benefit of this kind of application is savings on environmental resources due to a better pollutant spread simulation. Possible end users are local authorities, weather prediction units and energy plants among others.
