Comprehensive CMAQ model evaluation by Kirk Baker, for the LMOS 2017 May-June 2017 period
An excellent new paper is out, led by Kirk Baker, running the CMAQ model for the Lake Michigan Ozone Study LMOS 2017 period. Comprehensive evaluation of model performance for ozone, NOx, and VOCs using many data sources.
I think this is the first thorough and peer-reviewed comparison of a model during LMOS 2017 and the aircraft NO2 columns measured by the NASA GeoTASO instrument. (see figure below).
Figure 5 from Baker et al., comparing the model and surface observations of NO2 (left), the aircraft NO2 columns (middle), and the model NO2 columns (right).
