The temporal resolution of meteorological data may have a considerable
influence on model results for the dispersion and transformation of reactive
Two dimensional versions of the mesoscale model MEMO and the
photochemical dispersion model MARS are used to study the influence of the
update interval of the meteorological quantities assuming pollutant dispersion
in a thermally induced flow, specifically a sea/land breeze.
simulation results achieved at various update intervals reveals that a low update
frequency may lead to an overprediction of ozone concentrations, especially in
This finding is confirmed also by the results of three dimensional
applications of MEMO and MARS dealing with the transport and
