Abstract

The efforts by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) towards real-time prediction of US Northeast Corridor Ozone are discussed. In the first phase, MAQSIP-RT model forecasts were produced over New England and the Northern Mid-Atlantic, running in real-time at 45km, 15km and 5 km. MAQSIP-RT is able, in forecast mode, to meet several key performance criteria for regulatory models that are exercised and analyzed, rather than forecast. The Phase 1 MAQSIP-RT forecast results were evaluated using the standard EPA episodic regulatory model metrics and compared against several operational forecast methods already available at the same time.
