MC2-AQ is a multiscale meteorological model combined with an atmospheric air quality module. It is capable of simulating meteorological phenomena and atmospheric chemistry in a wide range of scales, from the regional to the agglomeration scale. High-resolution models, containing comprehensive descriptions of atmospheric chemistry are nowadays applied at spatial resolutions of one kilometre or even higher, despite numerous deficiencies in the available emissions inventories. Hence, a highly important question – quite apart from the general performance assessment of a given model – regarding the results’ reliability limitations due to the quality of the emission database.
