Abstract

When considering air quality, notably in South America, it seems that we are falling behind more developed regions in exacerbating the issue. This shortfall serves not just as observation, but as a warning, as air quality problems here are rapidly escalating. Nevertheless, by examining how other countries have addressed similar issues, we can prepare ourselves to tackle our own challenges. In this thesis we demonstrate how utilizing Data Assimilation DA we can reduce the uncertainty in some model uncertain parameters in an air quality model such as the LOTOS-EUROS Chemical Transport Model (CTM).....
