SAEMC 2006-2010 is a four year international project financed by the Inter American Institute for Global Change (IAI) in which five countries, 20 researchers and 12 postgraduate students participate from 9 institutions.
Objectives rolex replica
To provide accurate regional emissions and climate change scenarios for South America, with emphasis on the impacts of and on megacities.
To establish the basis for operational chemical weather forecast for South American megacities.
To strengthen and expand an active research and capacity building network in the Americas functional to Earth System Modeling.
Mobile and Stationary emissions scenarios estimate and evaluation. Dynamical down-scaling of climate change scenarios.
Pilot implementation of chemical weather forecast network and tools for South American megacities.
Prospective characterization of aerosols in and downwind from South American megacities.
Information and Technology. These areas complement each other, and as integrated they establish a key component for Earth System Modeling in the Americas.
SAEMC Workshops replica watches
The outcome of the June SAEMC 2007 Workshop was intended to the establishment of regional capabilities to address the enormous challenge of air quality degradation in South American megacities which offers an opportunity to improve and enhance hitherto disperse research capabilities and to produce scientifically sound and policy-relevant knowledge and tools. The second SAEMC Workshop was held in Brazil in 2008.
