||Interest has grown to understand the transport and chemistry of pollutants originating from eastern Asia, which is undergoing rapid industrialization. Acid deposition has become one of key environmental issues due to the increased use of high-sulfur fossil fuels in the area. Recently, U.S. EPA has developed and publicly released the Models-3 Community Multiscale Air Quality (CMAQ) modeling system. It is a comprehensive modeling system that consists of a meteorological model, an emissions processing and projection system and several interface processors such as Meteorology-Chemistry Interface Processor (MCIP), as well as the CMAQ Chemical Transport Model (CCTM). One of key design objectives of Models-3 CMAQ was to achieve flexibility that enables linkage of different science processors and modules to build appropriate air quality models to meet users' needs.
||Prepared in cooperation with National Inst. for Environmental Studies, Ibaraki (Japan). and Kyushu Univ., Fukuoka (Japan).
