Evaluation of a CMAQ simulation at high resolution over the UK for the calendar year 2003
A comprehensive ‘operational’ evaluation of the performance of the Community Multiscale Air Quality (CMAQ) modelling system version 4.6 was conducted in support of pollution assessment in the UK for the calendar year 2003. ...
New algorithms and their application for satellite remote sensing of surface PM2.5 and aerosol absorption
Estimation of Particulate Matter (PM) concentration and aerosol absorption is very important in air quality and climate studies. To date, smoke, mineral dust and anthropogenic pollutants are the most uncertain aerosol ...
Lagrangian modelling of plume chemistry for secondary pollutants in large industrial plumes
Industrial sources of nitrogen oxides range from boilers and metal furnaces to fossil fuel power stations. Current UK regulatory practice for these plumes adopts a fixed proportion of nitrogen dioxide, as a simple and ...
Performance characteristics of MM5-SMOKE-CMAQ for a summer photochemical episode in Southeast England, United Kingdom
In this study a modelling system consisting of Mesoscale Model (MM5), Sparse Matrix Operator Kernel Emissions (SMOKE) and Community Multiscale Air Quality (CMAQ) model has been applied to a summer photochemical period in ...
