The influence of the anthropogenic heat fluxes on the meteorological fields formation over the metropolitan area of Paris

Authors: Dranicher O.R.

Issue: 14

Pages: 114-121


The estimate of anthropogenic heat fluxes influence on meteorological fields over the metropolitan area of Paris is performed by the numerical weather prediction model Enviro-HIRLAM. The control and land-surface modified runs have been tested. The simulated outputs are evaluated for a diurnal cycle of meteorological variables and their differences between two runs for the urban, suburban and rural area.
