CMAQ Fact Sheet
For more than a decade, EPA and states have used EPA’s Community Multiscale Air Quality (CMAQ) Modeling System, a powerful computational tool for air quality management.
CMAQ brings together three kinds of models:
- Meteorological models to represent atmospheric and weather activities.
- Emission models to represent man-made and naturally-occurring contributions to the atmosphere.
- An air chemistry-transport model to predict the atmospheric fate of air pollutants under varying conditions.
