The BRAVO monitoring network provided an opportunity to conduct a comprehensive evaluation of CMAQ-MADRID over a 4-month period. Tracer simulations revealed uncertainties in the model representation of advection and diffusion processes and the effects of uncertainties in meteorological fields on transport simulations. Results improved with the implementation of a more diffusive horizontal diffusion scheme. The 12-km resolution provided better results than the 4-and 36-km resolution simulations for 15-25 Augus…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
