Models-3 is a flexible third generation software modeling system designed to simplify the development and use of the environmental assessment and other decision support tools. It is designed for applications ranging from regulatory and policy analysis to understanding the complex interactions of atmospheric chemistry and physics. This version of Models-3 contains a Community Multiscale Air Quality (CMAQ) system for urban to regional scale air quality simulation of tropospheric ozone, acid deposition, visibility and fine particulate. Models-3 and CMAQ in combination form a powerful third generation air quality modeling and assessment system. Third generation models treat multiple pollutants simultaneously up to continental scales and incorporate feedback between chemical and meteorological components.
