  • MISKAM is a 3-dimensional non-hydrostatic climate -, flow - and dispersion model for the microscale prediction of flow - and concentration fields. It covers in the vicinity of single buildings, as well as streets with adjacent buildings and city quarters. MISKAM was developed by Dr. J. Eichhorn, Institute of Atmospheric Physics, University of Mainz. The model was continuously refined and is now validated on the basis of a large variety of field measurements.
  • Buildings are introduced explicity within the grid for the calculation not just as increased roughness but by their occupation of the grid cells. Thus the basic for the details of the flow in the vicinity of buildings is correct.
  • The physical basis of MISKAM are the full 3-dimensional equations of motion as well as the advection-dispersion equation for substances of neutral density.
  • MISKAM 5.02 got an additional extensive validation by Dr. Eichhorn.
  • MISKAM 6.3 64 bit is available since 2014. Latest update: MISKAM 6.3 (2014/07/29)


  • WinMISKAM is a complete graphical user interface for the preparation of the MISKAM input files as well as for the display of the results, calculated by MISKAM. It contains the most recent version of MISKAM. The interface was developed by Ingenieurbüro Lohmeyer GmbH & Co. KG in close cooperation with Dr. Eichhorn.
  • Buildings and buildling clusters can be digitized directly on the screen on the basis of scanned bit maps. Configuration files for MISKAM are created interactively. The non-equidistant 3-dimensional grid can easily be edited by a mouse.
  • WinMISKAM contains the module PROKAS_S, used to calculate the statistical parameters of the concentration time series.
  • NO-NO2 conversion is treated according to Romberg et al. (1996) or alternatively with a simplified chemistry model (Duering et al., 2011) . In the simplified chemistry model of Duering et al. directly emitted NO2 from traffic vehicles is considered.
  • For advanced visualization of WinMISKAM results a ParaView interface is available.
  • WinMISKAM is a 32-bit-program, available for WINDOWS 7, XP and 2000.

WinMISKAM Maintenance contract € 1.027,65

(For orders from outside Germany no VAT has to be charged,
for orders inside Germany a VAT of presently 19 % is added)

In case of existing maintenance contract we allow a reduction of 30 % for new released supplementary modules.

WinMISKAM-supplementary modules are only available in connection with the latest version of WinMISKAM. In case you have a maintenance contract, you always get the latest version of WinMISKAM.

In case there is no maintenance contract, for an update to the latest version of WinMISKAM € 59,95 (plus VAT) are charged per month of the period without maintenance contract. The period without maintenance contract starts 6 months after the purchase date of WinMISKAM.
