Limited area mesoscale meteorological models are very useful tools for regional weather forecast on short temporal and spatial scales, and for air pollution studies. With particular interest in air pollution transport and dispersion in the boundary layer and for responding to air pollution emergencies in coastal regions, a mesoscale model restricted to the lower troposphere and capable of providing boundary layer meteorology simulations within a short time has been developed. This model is programmed for a microcomputer and is in research mode. Daggupaty and Sahota (1991) report results with an earlier version of this mesoscale model by assuming the land area of the model domain as one homogeneous land type. In the present, paper we discuss the model results by considering land heterogeneities.
