Abstract In general, the model performance statistics indicate that the performance of the ARM3 is as good or better than the other mesoscale air quality models. However, care should be taken in the interpretation of these statistical measures. As noted in the analysis, the performance of a model varies depending on which measures of model performance are used: the model's ability to predict observations matched in time and location or the ability to predict peak observations. Because resources were limited, the evaluation of ARM3 was limited in scope. In particular, because of a lack of an appropriate data base, the ARM3 could not be evaluated for its primary purpose, i.e., calculating source-specific acid deposition impacts in complex terrain. However, the fact that the model performs as good or better than existing mesoscale air quality simulation models indicates that the model shows some promise for use as a regulatory decision-making tool and should be further evaluated and refined.
