Abstract

The paper explores the possibility of making long-term simulations of SC>2 ambient concentrations at the resolution needed for health and direct ecosystem effects risk assessment in Asian mega-cities and their surroundings. A Lagrangian trajectory model (UR-BAT) is described which simulates transport and diffusion of sulfur near urban areas, originating from area and major point sources. The model has been applied to Bombay, by using preliminary emission figures, and the results have be
