Results of research conducted on the further development of an earlier atmospheric diffusion model are presented. The work has resulted in a diffusion model with photochemistry that is applicable to pollutants that undergo chemical changes. The techniques used in the report have been advanced to the stage where they can be adapted to the planning and implementation of air pollution abatement measures. The photochemical description has been extended to account for varying ratios of nitrogen to hydrocarbon. Some hypotheses of carbon monoxide interactions have been tested. Descriptions are given also of numerical integration improvements, and of refinements in the meteorological realism of the model. Finally, the paper presents validation tests for Los Angeles basin data and the significance of the results are discussed in terms of future applications of the technique. (APCO Abstract)
