Model Results for Winter 2009/2010
This page contains preliminary results from simulations with the
SLIMCAT 3D model
chemical transport model.
The near real time model run is forced by ECMWF T42L91 operational analyses
with a horizontal resolution of 2.8 x 2.8 degrees and 32 levels from the
surface to ~60 Km.
