The course aims to introduce the ADMS-Roads software as a tool for assessing air quality near a small road network, using worked examples to develop familiarity with main model input parameters and output, based on modelling small numbers of pollution sources.
The course considers the choice and use of meteorological data with ADMS-Roads, the use of an emissions inventory database for storing larger numbers of road sources, the selection of background concentration data, and modelling the effects of chemical reactions for NOx.
The first day gives an introduction to ADMS-Roads and the atmospheric boundary layer.
The second day extends the ideas introduced on day 1.
