Objective:

This is one of the research projects conducted by the Research Consortium. The objectives of this research project were to: (1) improve the treatment of secondary organic aerosols (SOAs) in atmospheric models; (2) improve the numerical aspects of three-dimensional air quality models; (3) develop the most advanced version of a three-dimensional urban scale model for ozone and particulate matter (PM); and (4) apply that model to the South Coast Air Basin of California (SoCAB). Each of these objectives was achieved (Griffin, et al., 2002 a and b; Pun, et al., 2002).
