SMART simulation of the fire in the harbour of Ancona on September 16th 2020

Fire Ancona 16 september 2020

As done for the accident in Marghera on past 15th of May (, also the recent fire occurred in the harbour of Ancona has been simulated with SMART modelling suite, as new test case. The emission term has been elaborated by ARIANET Srl. The release starts at 23 UTC on 15th September.

The modelling system SMART is under development for the simulation of accidental releases dispersion. SMART is composed by the non-hydrostatic atmospheric model MOLOCH (here run at 500 m horizontal resolution), interfaced to the Lagrangian stochastic particle dispersion model SPRAY, through the new ARAMIS code.

The new suite is planned to be adopted as a tool for emergency response purposes in any part of the Italian territory at any time.
