An Urban Surface Exchange Parameterisation for Mesoscale Models
A scheme to represent the impact of urban buildings on airflow in mesoscale atmospheric models is presented. In the scheme, the buildings are not explicitly resolved, but their effects on theExpand

A new building energy model coupled with an urban canopy parameterization for urban climate simulations—part I. formulation, verification, and sensitivity analysis of the model
The generation of heat in buildings, and the way this heat is exchanged with the exterior, plays an important role in urban climate. To analyze the impact on urban climate of a change in the urbanExpand

A Correction Method for Use in Multidimensional Time-Splitting Advection Algorithms: Application to Two- and Three-Dimensional Transport
Abstract Meteorological and air quality models rely on accurately solving the advection equation in two and three dimensions. While a number of methods have been developed, all suffer from theExpand

Air quality modelling over Bogota, Colombia : Combined techniques to estimate and evaluate emission inventories
Two versions of the Emission Inventory (EI) are generated for the city of Bogota, Colombia. In the first version (EI-1), CORINAIR traffic emission factors (EFs) are used. In the second (EI-2), bulkExpand

On the impact of urban surface exchange parameterisations on air quality simulations: the Athens case
Abstract Most of the standard mesoscale models represent the dynamic and thermodynamic surface exchanges in urban areas with the same technique used for rural areas (based on Monin–Obukhov similarityExpand
