About

FOOT has been developed and funded with support from the LEFE/INSU grant VAPEURDO
  • The development of FOOT consisted in the design a robust forecast system at LACy laboratory based on FLEXPART forecasts and satellite products, and setup a dedicated website to easily access the forecast products.
  • FLEXPART model trajectory forecasts over 5 days are driven by 3-hourly ECMWF forecasts at quarter degree resolution and 137 vertical model levels. The ECMWF forecasts are retrieved automatically twice a day from the ECMWF server.
  • The near-real time METEOSAT 7 satellite data are also retrieved automatically from the ICARE server at the University of Lille whenever data become available. The brightness temperatures of the infrared channel of METEOSAT 7 provide regional characteristics of deep convection in the Indian Ocean.
