Detailed specifications are given for a network of data processors and submodels that can generate the parameter fields required by the regional oxidant model formulated in Part 1 of this report. Operations performed by the processor network include simulation of the motion and depth of the nighttime radiation inversion layer; simulation of the depth of the convective mixed and cloud layers; estimation of the synoptic-scale vertical motion fields; generation of ensembles of layer-averaged horizontal winds; calculation of vertical turbulence fluxes, pollutant deposition velocities, parameters for a subgrid-scale concentration fluctuation parameterization scheme; and many other functions. This network of processors and submodels, in combination with the core model developed in Part 1, represent the EPA's first-generation regional oxidant model.
