The paper describes a project that combines the capabilities of urban geography, raster-based GIS, predictive meteorological and air pollutant diffusion modeling, to support a neighborhood-scale air quality monitoring pilot study under the U.S. EPA EMPACT Program. The study has resulted in the establishment of a raster-based GIS urban morphology data set centered on Rodeo, CA and a large series of predictive microscale airflow (and diffusion) simulations in support of an operational mobile air quality monitoring system.
