Short summary
Since populated valleys suffer often from poor air quality, it is of interest to better understand the various mechanisms relevant to remove pollutants from the valley atmosphere. One mechanism is the transport by along-slope flows, which are generated during fair-weather days. In this study we quantify the amount of tracer that is removed from a valley atmosphere and the amount that is re-circulated within the valleys. For this study we are using the numerical weather model WRF.
