An advanced third-generation air quality modeling system has been developed by the Atmospheric Modeling Division of the U.S. EPA. The air quality simulation model at the heart of the system is known as the Community Multiscale Air Quality (CMAQ) Model. It is comprehensive in scope and allows for the simulation of ozone and photochemical oxidants, acid deposition, and fine and coarse particles at spatial scales ranging from urban to regional. The model is contained within a computational framework, Models-3 (for 3rd generation), that enables users to interact with the modeling system through a high-level graphical user interface and also facilitates data transmission among the components of the system and provides for analysis, graphics, and visualization capabilities for model simulations results.
