Abstract

Ozone Control Strategy Calculations for the Geneva Area A contribution to subprojects SATURN and GLOREAM Bernd C Kriiger, Jerome Ktibler and Alain Clappier Laboratoire de Pollution Atmospherique etSol, Ecole Polytechnique Federate de Lausanne, CH-1015 Lausanne, Switzerland Introduction The city of Geneva, which is located in complex terrain, occasionally suffers from high ozone concentrations. We have performed three-dimensional model calculations with a resolution of 1 km x 1 km to investigate the influence of reductions in the emissions of hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxides on the air quality. Model and data description The model used for this study is a modified version of the CIT (Caltech, Carnegie Institute of Technology) airshed model (McRae et #/., 1982). It is a three-dimensional Eulerian photochemical transport model, which is driven diagnostically by meteorological, air quality, and emission dat
