The most widely used method for determining ozone control requirements for urban areas has been the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Empirical Kinetic Modeling Approach (EKMA). The limitations of EKMA are discussed in Chapter 6: In practice, only periods of less than one day are simulated, and, as a result, the method cannot capture the.

Application of the MPC technique to the control of urban networks with MFD modeling also attracted recent interest: Nonlinear MPC for a two-region network actuated with perimeter control [ Air Pollution was from the start one of the priority problems under study within the framework of the pilot studies undertaken by this Committee.

The organization of a yearly symposium dealing with air pollution modeling and its application is one of the main activities within the pilot study in relation to air pollution. In some cases special monitoring studies might be helpful to determine the transport of pollutants into urban areas.

Particular monitoring methods and recommendations are described in Chapter 7. the empirical kinetic modeling approach Rethinking the Ozone. One variant of the photochemical box model that has been widely used for estimating ozone concentration in urban areas is the so-called EKMA (empirical kinetic modeling approach) technique (Dodge, ).

This approach is based on the generation of ozone concentration isopleths using an ozone isopleths plotting package (OZIPP). Combining new data with tools and concepts from statistical physics and urban economics, this book presents a modern and interdisciplinary perspective on cities and urban systems.
