MUNICH v2.0: a street-network model coupled with SSH-aerosol (v1.2) for multi-pollutant modelling

Abstract

A new version of a street-network model, the Model of Urban Network of Intersecting Canyons and Highways version 2.0 (MUNICH v2.0), is presented. The comprehensive aerosol model SSH-aerosol is implemented in MUNICH v2.0 to simulate the street concentrations of multiple pollutants, including secondary aerosols. The implementation uses the application programming interface (API) technology so that the SSH-aerosol version may be easily updated. New parameterisations are also introduced in MUNICH v2.0, including a non-stationary approach to model reactive pollutants, particle deposition and resuspension, and a parameterisation of the wind at roof level. A test case over a Paris suburb is presented for model evaluation and to illustrate the impact of the new functionalities. The implementation of SSH-aerosol leads to an increase of 11 % in PM10 concentration because of secondary aerosol formation. Using the non-stationary approach rather than the stationary one leads to a decrease in NO2 concentration of 16 %. The impact of particle deposition on built surfaces and road resuspension on pollutant concentrations in the street canyons is low.
