To comply with the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments, grid-based photochemical models such as the Urban Airshed Model (UAM) are being used in developing emission control policies to alleviate the ozone non-attainment problem. In this study, the authors examine the uncertainties in the UAM-predicted ozone concentrations arising from uncertainties in the specification of boundary concentrations of ozone and its precursors from the ROM using PMET and DMET simulations for two high ozone episodes over the New York Airshed.
