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 ...
Atmospheric polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons: Source attribution, emission factors and regulation
There is an increasing concern about the occurrence of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in the environment as they are ubiquitous in ambient air and some of them are among the strongest known carcinogens. PAHs and ...

Light scattering and absorption properties of dust particles retrieved from satellite measurements
We use the radiative transfer model and chemistry transport model to improve our retrievals of dust optical properties from satellite measurements. The optical depth and absorbing optical depth of mineral dust can be ...
