Impact of Terrain on Wind: Atmospheric Deposition & Water Resources
Track: Atmosphere, Climate, and Weather
Authors: Amber Brooks
While developed countries have implemented engineering techniques and sanitation technologies to keep water resources clean, air pollutionís contribution of harmful contaminants to our water resources has yet to be fully understood and prevented. Due to the spatial and temporal extent and computational intensity required to understand atmospheric deposition as a pollutant source, the behavior of wind was simulated and the spatial distribution of contaminant flux was mapped across Lake Perris.
