Paper Abstract

The method to calculate the wind fields in the low atmosphere based on the use of satellite images of smoke plumes from the chimneys of industrial plants various heights is proposed. The model is based on Ekman layer equations. The results of calculations of the vertical profiles of wind velocity components and the coefficient of the turbulent exchange are given for the city of Omsk, an example. Possibilities of using approach to analyze the processes of pollution of urban atmosphere are discussed.
