Catalunya Wind and Temperature

The mesoscale and microscale atmospheric modelling and research group (MAiR) was set up in January 2010 through an initiative of a group of researchers from the Department of Astronomy and Meteorology of the University of Barcelona. MAiR is specialized in the development and use of meso and micro scale atmospheric numerical models applied to meteorology and mainly to atmospheric pollutant transport and diffusion.
