Abstract: ADMS-Urban has been used in approximately half of the pilot studies of air pollution recently carried out in the UK. The pilot areas varied in spatial extent and in the nature of the sources, the balance between traffic, industrial and domestic sources, and the pollutants which are important. The studies used local emission inventories, and outputs included time-series of predicted concentrations which could be compared with measured data at monitoring sites, as well as contour concentration plots across the study area.

Keywords: emissions inventory; GIS; gridded emissions; NOx chemistry; urban air pollution.
