Abstract. The COST Action ES1004 – European framework for online integrated air quality and meteorology modelling (EuMetChem) is focusing on a new generation of online integrated Atmospheric Chemical Transport (ACT) and Meteorology (Numerical Weather Prediction and Climate) models with two-way interactions between different atmospheric processes including chemistry (both gases and aerosols), clouds, radiation, turbulent mixing, emissions, meteorology and climate. Two major application areas of the integrated modelling are considered: (i) improved numerical meteorology and weather prediction (NWP) and chemical weather forecasting (CWF) with short-term feedbacks of aerosols and chemistry on meteorological variables, and (ii) two-way interactions between atmospheric pollution/composition and climate variability/change. The framework consists of 4 working groups namely: 1) Strategy and framework for online integrated modelling; 2) Interactions, parametrizations and feedback mechanisms; 3) Chemical data assimilation in integrated models; and 4) Evaluation, validation, and applications. Establishment of such an European framework (involving also key American experts) enables the EU to develop world class capabilities in integrated ACT/NWP-Climate modelling systems, including research, education and forecasting. This article provides an introduction to the EuMetChem goals and outcomes for this Special Issue "Coupled chemistry–meteorology modelling: status and relevance for numerical weather prediction, air quality and climate communities (SI of EuMetChem COST ES1004)" which collects key scientific papers of EuMetChem and its collaborators from different continents.
The discussion paper was formally withdrawn.
