Abstract

The capabilities of regional and mesoscale meteorological models make them attractive to use in air pollution studies. Especially, flow modelling and dispersion analysis in complex terrain plays an important role in the control of emissions into the atmosphere. In the numerical simulation of an atmospheric phenomenon, various coordinate systems are used to represent the terrain and the vertical structure of the atmosphere. In many studies, the terrain-following coordinate transformation is used, although some problems exist in the vicinity of sharp edges of the topography.
