Abstract

The application of comprehensive air quality models, such as the Urban Airshed Model, is a computationally demanding exercise that has to be preceded by the compilation of extensive input data sets for emissions, meteorology, and land use for the domain of interest. These computational requirements discourage the type of numerical experimentation required for a thorough analysis of emission reduction strategies.
