Air pollution in coastal urban flows : Observations and model evaluation for the New York City area
Urban areas affect prevailing mesoscale and synoptic flow patterns in various ways. Results from a series of simulations using the TVM/URBMET mesoscale model are presented to illustrate the contributions to the observed urban effects over New York City arising from various urban and coastal influences. The simulated meteorological fields were then used as input to a three-dimensional Eulerian dispersion model to study urban effects on dispersion patterns.
