Special Issue on: "Air Quality Modelling"

Guest Editors:
Sam Pournazeri, California Air Resources Board, USA
Ashok Kumar, The University of Toledo, USA

This special issue will focus on different aspects of air quality modeling, from short range dispersion models to long range transport models, photochemistry and micrometeorology. It will provide a broad discussion on new methodologies and applications of different air quality modelling techniques.

Subject Coverage
Suitable topics include but are not limited to:

  • Atmospheric transport and dispersion modelling systems
  • Urban dispersion and micrometeorology
  • Wind tunnel and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modelling approaches
  • Long range transport models
  • Background concentrations modelling
  • Photochemical modelling
  • Impact of micrometeorology on air quality
  • Issues involved in meteorological data
  • Air quality evaluation studies and applications
  • Air quality model sensitivity analysis
  • Air pollution forecasting
  • Modelling air quality impacts of transportation and agriculture sources
  • Impact of vegetation on air pollution dispersion and filtration
