A Federated Partnership for Urban Meteorological and Air Quality Modeling

Abstract:Recently, applications of urban meteorological and air quality models have been performed at resolutions on the order of km grid sizes. This necessitated development and incorporation of high resolution landcover data and additional boundary layer parameters that serve to describe the influence of urban morphological structures on the flow, transport and energetic details in urban areas. The task of determining the structure and composition of urban areas has been termed urban morphological analysis. The data requirements for urban morphological parameters for advanaced mecaecale grid models has lead to the generation of very large datasets for urban canaopy parameters (UCPs) used to drive models such as CMAQ/MM5, e.g. Dupont et al, 2004, and Otte et al., 2004.
