Abstract

Recent emission inventories reflect that the Greater Madrid Area (GMA) acts as a large source of pollutants, with road traffic being the major contributor to the total NOx, VOC and CO emissions. Consequently, photochemical smog episodes are relatively frequent and important. Modelling analysis has been used to study the impact of emission reductions in the ozone generation. The TVM-CHEM model has been used to simulate the photosmog formation over the GMA during two summer days in which thermal low pressure dominates atmospheric conditions. The
