USING AIR QUALITY MODELS FOR EMISSIONS MANAGEMENT DECISIONS, MAKING DECISIONS IN THE FACE OF UNCERTAINTY
Rao, S T. USING AIR QUALITY MODELS FOR EMISSIONS MANAGEMENT DECISIONS, MAKING DECISIONS IN THE FACE OF UNCERTAINTY. Presented at Presentation to NRC Committee on CREM, Washington, DC, March 18, 2004.
The objectives of this task are to continuously develop and improve EPA's mesoscale (regional through urban scale) air quality simulation models, such as the Community Multiscale Air Quality (CMAQ) model, as air quality management and NAAQS implementation tools. CMAQ is a multiscale and multi-pollutant chemistry-transport model (CTM) that includes the necessary critical science process modules for atmospheric transport, deposition, cloud mixing, emissions, gas- and aqueous-phase chemical transformation processes, and aerosol dynamics and chemistry. To achieve the advances in CMAQ, research will be conducted to develop and test appropriate chemical and physical mechanisms, improve the accuracy of emissions and dry deposition algorithms, and to develop and improve state-of-the-science meteorology models and contributing process parameterizations.
