Recently I am working on implementing black carbon emission into my CMAQ emission file. But I am a little bit confusing the effects of the addition of black carbon into the emission file. I mean, does it make sense to CMAQ model that providing the BC emission in the emission file and compare it without BC emission?
I am also curious about how BC is treated in the current chemistry module in CMAQ. Does CMAQ5.3.1 account for its light absorption effects?
Any suggestions are highly appreciated!
