Abstract

The development of a national air quality forecasting (NAQF) program is discussed. The program provides ozone, fine particulate matter and other pollutant forecasts with sufficient accuracy. The advance notice of the information allows actions to be taken to reduce the adverse health effects. The testing of the model show that the spatial location of the maximum ozone plumes was often well forecasted by the model which suggests that the model was successful in providing low level and fine scale wind forecasts.
