Uncertainties in Regional Oxidant Modelling - Experience with a Comprehensive Regional Model
In recent years comprehensive models have been used as an increasingly important tool for the understanding of “source-receptor” relationships of various atmospheric pollutants and for developing and testing emission control strategies. However one must realize that each process included in a comprehensive model can potentially introduce uncertainties in model results. Model uncertainties can arise from the formulation and numerical representation of these processes as well as from uncertainties in the required input parameters. The understanding of these model uncertainties is important in the process of model development, model evaluation and model application.
