MICROSCALE MODELING OF NEAR-ROADWAY AIR QUALITY BY NUMERICAL TECHNIQUES

Numerical techniques provide a powerful tool for the assessment of transportation-related air quality impacts. They are potentially capable of accounting for meteorology and topography of almost unlimited complexity. This paper presents a description of their basic nature, a discussion of existing capabilities including some particular models, suggested ways for improvement of models, and consideration of the relative merits of numerical versus Gaussian models. /Author/
