NMMB/BSC-Dust Forecast

Welcome to the new operational web site of the NMMB/BSC-Dust model (Perez et al., 2011, Haustein et al., 2012) in the Earth Sciences Dpt. of the Barcelona Supercomputing Center-Centro Nacional de Supercomputación (BSC-CNS). The model predicts the atmospheric life cycle of the eroded desert dust for a regional and global domain and was developed as a pluggable component of the NMMB.

The contents and images offered in this website can be freely used by anyone with the only commitment to explicitly mention the source and include the following acknowledgement: "data and/or images from the NMMB/BSC-Dust model, operated by the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (", every time they are used. In the case of establishing links to the contents of this website, kindly inform us kim [dot] serradell [at] bsc [dot] es (via email).

If you need specific data, you must formalize the request to jose [dot] baldasano [at] bsc [dot] es (Dr. José María Baldasano), indicating the data needed and the reason for the request.

The NMMB/BSC-CTM is included in the multi-model intercomparison initiative of the International Cooperative on Aerosol rediction (ICAP) project. Visit the project homepage, here.
