Development of a second-generation mathematical model for urban air pollution—I. Model formulation


A new comprehensive modeling system for urban air pollution, including three-dimensional, grid-based as well as Lagrangian trajectory, vertically integrated and single cell formulations, is described. Recent developments in photochemistry, turbulent diffusion, surface removal processes, objective analysis procedures and numerical solution techniques are incorporated and described.
