Modeling and measurements of the ABL in Sofia, Bulgaria
This paper presents the results obtained in the frame of the HPC-EUROPA (Pan-European Research Infrastructure on High Performance Computing) cooperation project. The meteorological fields over Sofia have been simulated using RAMS (Regional Atmospheric Modeling System) through parallel computing. The meteorological simulations have been calculated considering different RAMS model versions, nested grid configuration and spatial resolutions. The evaluation of the model results is then performed against boundary-layer experimental measurements, using radio-sounding and surface data collected in the area from September to October 2003.
