IMPACTS OF FAIR-WEATHER CUMULUS CLOUDS, BAY BREEZES, AND LAND USE ON URBAN AIR QUALITY AND CLIMATE
Fair-weather cumulus clouds, bay breezes, and land use influence air quality and climate. The impacts of urban land surface changes and model resolution on fair-weather cumulus clouds, bay breezes, air quality, and climate ...
Assimilation of trace gas retrievals with the Local Ensemble Transform Kalman Filter
Over the 50 year history of Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP), the focus has been on the modeling and prediction of meteorological parameters such as surface pressure, temperature, wind, and precipitation. However, due ...
Lifetime and distribution of ozone and related pollutants in the eastern United States
Most major cities in the eastern United States have air quality deemed unhealthy by the EPA under a set of regulations known as the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS). The worst air quality in Maryland is ...
RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN COLUMN DENSITY AND SURFACE MIXING RATIO FOR O3 AND NO2: IMPLICATIONS FOR SATELLITE OBSERVATIONS AND THE IMPACTS OF VERTICAL MIXING
Satellites have great potential for diagnosis of surface air quality conditions, though reduced sensitivity of satellite instrumentation to the lower troposphere currently impedes their applicability. One objective of the ...
EXAMINATION OF TROPOSPHERIC OZONE AND ITS PRECURSORS WITHIN AN AIR QUALITY MODEL AND IMPLICATIONS FOR AIR QUALITY AND CLIMATE
Elevated levels of tropospheric ozone (O3) caused by emissions of NOx and VOCs negatively impact human health, crops, and ecosystems. Even if precursor emissions are reduced below current levels, predicted higher temperatures ...
