Abstract

Complex chemical transport modelling, its evaluation and application to air pollution episodes A. Ebel, H. Hass, H.J. Jakobs, M. Memmesheimer EURAD-Project, University of Cologne, Institute for Geophysics and Meteorology, W 5000 Cologne 1, Germany (all also at University of Wuppertal) 1 INTRODUCTION Complex chemical transport models of the polluted atmosphere have been developed for application to a wide range of scientific and environmental policy problems. On the one hand, they are needed for the improvement of our knowledge about the synergetic interaction of a great variety of me- teorological and chemical processes controlling air pollution. On the other hand, despite our limited understanding of the complicated system, there is a large and legitimate demand to apply chemical transport models to air pollution control and environmental planning. This study is intended to contribute to the discussion between model developers and applicants about the range of mode
