The Application of an Integrated Meteorological Air Quality Modelling System to a Photochemical Smog Event in Perth, Australia
In this paper we present the outcomes of a meteorological and a photochemical smog simulation for the city of Perth, Australia. These simulations are designed to represent the conditions observed during the Perth Photochemical Smog Study (PPSS; PPSS 1996). Conducted during the summer of 1994, the study yielded an extensive data base suitable for the validation of both meteorological and photochemical models.
