Abstract

The suitability of a mathematical model to simulate photochemical phenomena in European cities is currently being investigated. Model predictions are compared against measurements obtained in the city of Turin during a day when photochemical activity was observed. Helicopter sampling was conducted to establish the pollutant and temperature structure over and across the city. A ground based monitoring network provided data on ground level concentrations and the surface wind field. The performance of the model for this day is discussed.
