A global-through-urban scale nested and coupled air pollution and weather forecast model was developed and applied to the SARMAP Field Campaign. The model, GATOR-GCMM (Gas, Aerosol, Transport, Radiation, General Circulation, and Mesoscale Meteorological) model, treats nesting of all important air quality (including size- and composition-resolved aerosol) and meteorological parameters simultaneously, from the global scale through the urban scale (
