Studying air pollution levels in the Balkan Peninsula area by using an IBM Blue Gene/P computer
The Unified Danish Eulerian Model (UNI?DEM) is an appropriate model for investigating both the transport on long distances and the transformations in the atmosphere of pollutants, which are potentially harmful. This mathematical model was developed at the National Environmental Research Institute (NERI, Roskilde, Denmark). The spatial domain of the model covers Europe and some its neighbouring parts. The parallel code of UNI?DEM is created by using the MPI standard library. It is highly portable and performs very efficiently on different kind of parallel computers. An IBM Blue Gene/P computer is used in this study.
