Quantifying the impact of climate change on future air quality is a challenging subject in air quality studies. To investigate to what extent climate change can affect future summertime Ozone (O3) air quality in an urban area, the number of future exceedances of O3 air quality standards associated with regional climate change is projected by developing a statistical approach. An artificial neural network model is employed to simulate hourly O3 concentrations. The model is developed based on… Expand
