Paper Abstract

Various experiments have been carried out recently in Middle East (Israel) environments for prediction of aerosol particle concentration and size distribution versus sea-breeze wind speeds and overland ranges. During these experiments aerosol particle concentrations for different overland distances were measured and analyzed. This work proposes a new model for aerosol size distribution prediction up to 50-km distance away from the Mediterranean coast based on an extensive series of measurements. The model introduces coefficients and characteristics of processes of absorption and scattering by aerosol particles in the northern Negev desert areas. Effects of sea breeze wind over different ranges are described by the model proposed in this work using parameters obtained empirically.
