Paper Abstract

On the basis of a comprehensive series of measurements on the Irish Atlantic coast, an extension of the Navy Aerosol Model (NAM) for the coastal zone is proposed. As in NAM, the dependence of the aerosol concentration on meteorological parameters is parameterized using empirical coefficients. The effect of continental aerosols present in the coastal zone is modeled as a function of fetch. A reasonable agreement is found between the model and the aerosol size distributions as measured on the island Inisheer.
