The software package OLAF was used for a numerical study concerning the location of an air polluting facility in the region of central Europe.
"Central Europe" is a rather vague term. We mean here a region roughly encompassing the Benelux countries (Belgium, The Netherlands, and Luxembourg), the western part of Germany, southeastern Britain, and northeastern France. More precisely, the region used in this case study is a spherical rectangle with the Greenwich meridian ( longitude) as it's eastern bound and E longitude as it's western boundary, while the latitude coordinate runs from N to N. This region has been chosen given the availability of data needed by us, see Section 6.1 and especially 6.1.3. In Figure 6.1 and 6.2 (p. and ) the region under consideration is depicted (maps have been produced with GMT (Generic Mapping Tools), see ).
