About

Title of PhD: Modelling Air Pollution within a Street Canyon

Supervisors: Dr Xiaoming Cai and Dr William Bloss

Jian Zhong is undertaking doctoral research into Modelling Air Pollution within a Street Canyon. He is applying a novel numerical tool called large-eddy simulation to turbulent dispersion of air pollutants with fast photochemical reactions. He is trying to investigate how the street canyon aspect ratio, background wind, and solar angles influence the concentrations and the spatial patterns of key photochemical oxidants (O3, NO2, OH, H2O etc.).
