An Operational Evaluation of ETA-CMAQ Air Quality Forecast Model
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), in cooperation with the Environmental Protection Agency, is developing an Air Quality Forecasting Program that will eventually result in an operational Nationwide Air Quality Forecasting System. The initial phase of this program, which couples NOAA’s Eta meteorological model with EPA’s Community Multiscale Air Quality (CMAQ) model, began operation since May of this year and has been providing forecasts of hourly ozone concentrations over the northeastern United States.
