An overview is given of a numerical air quality prediction (NAQP) system running as part of a NOAA-funded pilot study. The NAQP system couples the MM5, the SMOKE model, and the MAQSIP-RT photochemical oxidant model. The routine use of this coupled forecast system represents a major advance in the field of air quality forecasting.
