Abstract
APPLIED RESEARCH CORPORATION PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A SOFTWARE SYSTEM FOR ANALYZING THE ATMOSPHERIC EFFECTS OF NUCLEAR CONFLICT SCENARIOS. THE PHASE I EFFORT WILL CONCENTRATE ON THE EFFECTS OF AEROSOLS INJECTED INTO THE ATMOSPHERE BY NUCLEAR DETONATION AND THE ASSOCIATED FIRES. THESE EFFECTS WILL BE EXPLORED, USING A MULTI-COMPONENT SIMULATION CONSISTING OF THE FOLLOWING EXISTING COMPUTER CODES: - A GENERAL CIRCULATION MODEL FOR AEROSOL DISPERSION; - A RADIATIVE TRANSFER CODE; AND - A SURFACE ENERGY BALANCE MODEL FOR CLIMATIC EFFECTS. THE FEEDBACK AMONG THESE COMPONENTS WILL BE EVALUATED TO GUIDE THE DESIGN OF A COUPLED GENERAL MODEL INCORPORATING FEEDBACK EFFECTS.
