Argonne National Laboratory researchers have developed a computer algorithm that uses a technique of data assimilation and the Ensemble Adjustment Kalman Filter (EAKF) algorithm to quickly and accurately assimilate biological data into climate models to generate more reliable forecasts. Because of the high stakes involved in meeting air-quality targets, scientists, city officials and regulators all want a more accurate way not only to measure air quality but also to predict where pollution "hot spots" will occur and plan for additional control strategies. For example, when air-quality monitors and environmental regulators inspect the pollution levels of cities, the difference of one or two parts per million in the concentration of pollutants like ozone and carbon monoxide can mean the difference between achieving a target and having to implement additional costly provisions to get failing areas back on track, researchers at Argonne National Laboratory said.
