New Particle Formation & Growth in CMAQ-NPF: Application of Comprehensive Model Methods to Observations during CalNex & CARES
Murphy, B., F. binkowski, C. Coats, M. Woody, AND H. Pye. New Particle Formation & Growth in CMAQ-NPF: Application of Comprehensive Model Methods to Observations during CalNex & CARES. 2016 CMAS Conference, Chapel Hill, NC, October 24 - 26, 2016.
The National Exposure Research Laboratory (NERL) Computational Exposure Division (CED) develops and evaluates data, decision-support tools, and models to be applied to media-specific or receptor-specific problem areas. CED uses modeling-based approaches to characterize exposures, evaluate fate and transport, and support environmental diagnostics/forensics with input from multiple data sources. It also develops media- and receptor-specific models, process models, and decision support tools for use both within and outside of EPA.
The formation and growth of new atmospheric ultrafine particles are exceedingly complex processes and recent scientific efforts have grown our understanding of them tremendously. This presentation describes the effort to apply this new knowledge to the CMAQ chemical transport model in order to better understand the sources, fate and impact of these pollutants.
