AQUAMI is a microcomputer based software package which includes a module to account for photochemical process taking place in the atmosphere; when coupled to kinetic mechanisms as the so-called CBM4, it allows the calculation of pollu- tants concentration in a system containing NO% and HCTs. From such calculations the so-called Isopleths, which are level curves representing the maximum Ozone concentra- tion in terms of NO* and HC's concentrations at the beginning of the solar day, may be constructed. Such curves have been widely used for the analysis of "scenarios'" in various cities through out the world. In t
