Abstract

Integrated and Operational Environmental Forecasting Model in Metropolitan Areas: OP ANA A contribution to subproject SATURN R San Jose\ M.A. Rodriguez \ S.

If this operational version is also intended to be used under real-time conditions the restrictions are even higher. Also, research air quality models are usually composed by complex meteorological, chemistry, emission and deposition modules such as the Atmospheric Mesoscale Numerical pollution model for regional and ur
