Advanced street canyon model derivation and validation published
CERC's article specifying a detailed derivation of the ADMS-Urban and ADMS-Roads advanced street canyon model has been published in the Journal of the Air and Waste Management Association. The advanced street canyon model feature has been included in the ADMS-Urban and ADMS-Roads models since the release of version 4.0 in 2015 and is now widely used by the ADMS modelling community.
The paper also includes the results of validation studies comparing advanced street canyon, non-canyon and basic canyon modelled concentrations with measurements recorded within three individual European street canyons from the TRAPOS study, and with routine air quality monitoring sites across London. The advanced canyon model is shown to have improved performance relative to the basic canyon or non-canyon modelling, particularly in relation to the variation of concentrations with wind direction and prediction of high concentrations.
The picture shows a vertical cross-section of annual average NO2 concentrations at the Marylebone Road monitoring site in London for 2012. The monitored value is shown in a diamond with the corresponding colour.
CERC are currently investigating and developing the advanced street canyon model for a wider range of street canyon configurations, in relation to monitoring data from the UK and Hong Kong. Details of other publications relating to CERC's research are given on the CERC co-author publications page.
