Abstract

Wind flow as well as air pollutant transport and transformation at the urban scale may be studied with the EUMAC Zooming Model (EZM). Core models of this comprehensive model system are the nonhydrostatic mesoscale model MEMO and the photochemical dispersion model MARS. Manifold air quality studies, primarily for large urban agglomerations in Europe, have been already performed with the EZM. As examples for such studies, results are presented from the application of the EZM to Thessaloniki and the Upper Rhine Valley. In addition, simulation results for the Mexico City case are discussed. In all these cases the results of the EZM agree fairly well with available observations. Introduction The development of atmospheric transport and transformation models is being coordinated in Europe in the frame of EUMAC (EUMAC = European Modelling of Atmospheric Constituents). As a subproject of EUROTRAC, EUMAC aim
