The BEYOND group, has been actively involved together with partners Geoapikonisis SA, Altamira SA, and CIMA Foundation in the EMSN-026 activation launched in the framework of the Copernicus EMS Risk & Recovery Activity.

The BEYOND Center of Excellence team contributed with its know-how and expertise to the service request for post-disaster assessment of toxic cloud dispersion, following an industrial accident on February 12th 2015 in the industrial complex of SIMAR, Igualada/Catalonia, Spain.

The assessment included the progression/pathway of the toxic cloud, from the explosion to the time it can be considered harmless for human health or undetectable. It referred to the mapping of cloud concentration and altitude from 9:30 a.m. to 14:00 p.m., local time (30 min time intervals). Relevant parameters conditioning the cloud dispersion/progression, such as wind direction, wind speed, atmospheric pressure, topography, etc. were considered in the analysis. Moreover, impacts on population/assets at the time of exposure were assessed.

The key user of the map series is the General Directorate of Civil Protection - Government of Catalonia.
