Applications of Integrated Environmental Modelling
The prediction of key variables that quantify the state of the individual components, such as wind, air temperature, humidity and precipitation for the atmosphere; flow speed, temperature and salinity for the ocean; or mass and area distribution of ice and snow, etc;
The prediction of the exchange of mass, momentum and energy between the components, in association with major cycles in the environmental system, e.g., the cycles of water, energy, CO2 and aerosol; and
The prediction of environmental events and phenomena, such as severe weather, air- and water-pollution episodes, ozone concentration, dust storms, salinisation, etc.
