An Eulerian transport/transformation/removal model for SO 2 and sulfate-III. Comparison with the July 1974 sure database


Journal Article

This is the third paper in a series describing an Eulerian transport/transformation/removal model (STEM-I). Simulation results for the period 4-9 July 1974 are compared with field data from the SURE experiment for the same period. Statistical analysis of the predicted and observed SO 2 and sulfate concentration data sets are used for the comparisons. The STEM-I model overpredicted SO 2 concentrations and underpredicted the sulfate concentrations. On average, the predicted amount of SO 2 deposited exceeded the predicted sulfate deposited by eight times, and the predicted amount of SO 2 deposited exceeded that being converted to sulfate by nearly an order of magnitude. Computed correlation coefficients were reasonably good. © 1988.
