It is no surprise, therefore, that a large number of very different models have been developed to combine the atmospheric chemistry with emissions and meteorology to simulate O 3 episodes and to quantify long-range transport of primary pollutants and the photochemical oxidant products.

Meridional transport is slower; wind speeds are of the order of 1 m s-1, and it takes typically months for air at midlatitudes to exchange with the tropics or with polar regions.

Interhemispheric transport is even slower because of the lack of Transport and photochemical modeling studies of atmospheric species book forcing across the Equator (recall the Hadley model in.

Chemical transport models and general circulation models. While related general circulation models (GCMs) focus on simulating overall atmospheric dynamics (e.g.

fluid and heat flows), a CTM instead focuses on the stocks and flows of one or more chemical rly, a CTM must solve only the continuity equation for its species of interest, a GCM must solve all the primitive equations for. A three-dimensional numerical model of atmospheric hydrodynamics, transport and photochemical transformation of gas-phase pollutants and aerosol dynamics is considered.

Photochemical modeling is the central element of the air quality modeling process and is used to simulate and predict pollutant concentrations.

A photochemical grid model simulates the atmosphere above a city by dividing it into thousands of boxes, or individual grid cells.

These grid cells are typically a few kilometers wide (e.g., 4. The distribution of most trace species within the troposphere depends on a complex interplay between chemistry and transport.

Often, the gas-phase concentration is in equilibrium with the aqueous phase. Then Henry′s law can be used to describe the distribution between the phases provided that the Henry′s law coefficient is by: Photochemical reaction, a chemical reaction initiated by the absorption of energy in the form of light.

The consequence of molecules ’ absorbing light is the creation of transient excited states whose chemical and physical properties differ greatly from the original molecules.
