Project Title: Coupling Urban and Regional processes: Effects on Air Quality (CureAir)

This is a collaborative project between the Universities of Edinburgh and Leeds, Cambridge Environmental Research Consultants (CERC) and the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology (CEH) funded by NERC (project abstract).

WP1 Create a modelling framework for simulating regional to local air quality
WP2 Detailed evaluation from field measurements and 0-D MCM for London
WP3 Evaluation of UK-wide decadal coupled model simulations of air quality
WP4 Quantifying weather-sensitive chemistry processes during recent heatwaves
WP5 Climate change and its impact on future O3 and PM events
