Modeling Ozone Concentration

By Brian Blaylock, Department of Atmospheric Sciences

A strong lake breeze with impact on air quality was observed on 18 June 2015 in the Salt Lake Valley. The progression of this lake breeze was simulated using the Weather Research and Forecast Model. The model was initialized using hourly analyses of the High Resolution Rapid Refresh model. Shown in the [above] videos are the concentrations of atmospheric tracers released near the surface at the north (red) and south (blue) end of the Salt Lake Valley. Tracers are released every time step from the source regions and then transported by the wind field. The development and passage of the simulated lake breeze is recognizable in the simulation on 18 June 2015 at 1830 UTC.
