Community Modeling and Analysis System

Community Bibliography

CMAS has assembled a collection of cited, CMAS-related publications for CMAS users who would like to read further about CMAS-related models. This Bibliography is a work in progress, and if you see something that you think belongs in this list, please email cmas@unc.edu and provide the citation in the same format as that used below. The Bibliography has three initial categories, CMAQ Development, CMAQ Applications, and CMAQ Evaluation.

CMAQ Development will contain links to contributions describing new features developed for and installed within CMAQ. CMAQ Applications will contain links to contributions describing the use of CMAQ calculations addressing particular questions such as emissions control strategies to meet air quality goals. CMAQ Evaluation will contain links to contributions describing comparisons of CMAQ calculations with particular observational data.
