Abstract

One-atmosphere dynamics description in the Models-3 Community Multi-scale Air Quality (CMAQ) modeling system Daewon W. Atmospheric Sciences Modeling Division, Air Resources Laboratory, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Research Triangle f art, NC 27777, L%4 Email: bdx@hpcc.epa.gov ^On assignment to the National Exposure Research Laboratory, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency ABSTRACT This paper proposes a general procedure to link meteorological data with air quality models, such as U.S. EPA's Models-3 Community Multi-scale Air Quality (CMAQ) modeling system. CMAQ is intended to be used for studying multi-scale (urban and regional) and multi-pollutant (ozone, aerosol, and acid/nutrient depositions) air quality problems. The Models-3 CMAQ system is expected to be a common vehicle to advance environmental modeling techniques for scientists and the regulatory community. To provide multi-scale capability for meteorological and air quality modeling, a set of governing
