Regional Air Quality Modeling System (RAQMS)
Entry ID: RAQMS


Summary
Abstract: Scientists use the Regional Air Quality Modeling System (RAQMS) computer model
to predict air quality around the globe. RAQMS has been designed to address the
atmospheric chemistry modeling needs for NASA's Earth Science Enterprise
science missions and to prototype future NASA, National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration, and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) operational air
quality prediction systems. It is a portable, global to regional scale
meteorological and chemical computer modeling system. RAQMS assimilates remote
and in-situ observations of atmospheric chemical composition to predict the
distribution of atmospheric trace gases (air quality) within any region of the
Earth. The Global Climate and Environmental Quality area of Langley's
Creativity and Innovation initiative supports RAQMS.
