Abstract:

Air pollution scientists can investigate the causes of air pollution using measurements of the ambient air and the results of air quality modelling. While ambient measurements give an indication of how serious air pollution problems are, but air quality models provide a detailed spatio-temporal pollutant concentration as well as allows testing different strategies for controlling air pollution. The issue of air pollution is complex due to the influence of medium and long-range transport of air pollutants and the need for mitigating secondary pollutants. The most effective way of testing control strategies in such situations is through regional photochemical air quality modelling. This presentation will cover basics of photochemical air quality modelling and the introduction to the tools SMOKE and CMAQ which are generally used for this purpose.

Presenter:

Mujtaba Shareef is a senior air quality scientist at Alberta Energy Regulator and a sessional instructor at University of Calgary. He has over two decades of experience in the areas of air quality modelling, ambient monitoring, environmental impact assessments, relevant policies, and guidelines. He is currently involved with various air quality cumulative effects management initiatives in the province. His research interests include secondary air pollutants modelling, source apportionment, reduced form modelling, and advanced air emissions data analysis.
