Re ECF Project: 2015-16

Project Title: Improving spring-time air quality forecast capability in the PATH modelling system

Applicant: Ir Dr Yun Fat LAM, City University of Hong Kong

Total Approved Grant: $482,000

Duration: 1/6/2016 to 31/5/2018

Project Status/Remarks: On-going

Scope:
The projects aims to investigate the potential impacts of Southeast Asian biomass burning in local air quality in Hong Kong, and proposes and evaluates a new modelling method for handling biomass-burning emissions to improve the springtime air quality forecast in the PATH (Pollutants in the Atmosphere and their Transport over Hong Kong) modelling system.

Summary of the Findings/Outcomes:
To be available upon completion of the project
