Abstract

A case study of photochemical pollution in a sub-tropical city K. Lunney P. Best, V. Anh, G. Johnson, W. Physick Griffith University, Katestone Scientific Pty Ltd., Division of Coal and Energy Technology and CSIRO Division of Atmospheric Research, Australia INTRODUCTION AND METHODOLOGY A multi-level approach has been adopted to assess the air-shed carrying capacity of Brisbane, a medium size sub-tropical city in north-eastern Australia. A balance of deterministic and stochastic approaches is required to achieve an adequate description of system characteristics and predictability over a range of time and length scales. Our goal is a coherent set of methodologies for determining long-term trends in a system of evolving spatial complexity and providing useful short-term forecasts of maximum regional ozone concentrations. The Brisbane conurbation is based on a central core population of 1.3 million that is likely to grow considerably (5% per annum) over the next
