Abstract

First, the atmospheric transport equations for citywide particulate air pollution are stated and methods for the numerical evaluation of each term are discussed. Next, the role of the several transport mechanisms in producing the observed daily air pollution cycle in Denver and analyzed. Finally, problems of concentration of pollution within Denver and the onset and termination of pollution episodes are described.
