BC CLEAR Projects 2008-2009 (funding start dates) > Modelling Photochemical Pollution in the Lower Fraser Valley

Modelling Photochemical Pollution in the Lower Fraser Valley

posted on 6:51 PM, July 6, 2016

Project Leader: Doug Steyn

The objective of this project is to provide a policy-relevant understanding of ambient ozone and emissions of ozone precursors in the Lower Fraser Valley (LFV) through modelling. The models will be evaluated on the demonstration of responsiveness to emissions changes (gross reductions in NOx and VOC), changes in chemical speciation and spatial and temporal shifts in emissions) that have occurred in the past, and are likely to occur in future scenarios. Models will also be evaluated by demonstrating that they can successfully capture the decadal evolution of photochemical pollution in the LFV in relation to changes in emissions and meteorology.

Where We Work

We are grateful to live and work on the unceded ancestral territories of the Indigenous Nations of British Columbia.
