Computational atmospheric sciences : OS 411 : an interactive resource for air quality professionals
Six self-instructional courses in air quality modelling have been created by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Air Pollution Training Institute (APTI) "for professionals who wish to develop a solid foundation in the technologies, techniques, and tools of air quality modeling and the use of computational science in air quality analyses". The courses cover: the essentials of chemistry, physics, mathematics and statistics required for air quality modelling; the essentials of atmospheric

Hidden Line Elimination in Projected Grid Surfaces
The hidden line and hidden surface problems are simpler when restricted to special classes of objects. An example is the class of grid surfaces, that is, graphs of bivariate functions represented by their values on a set of grid points. Projected grid surfaces have geometric properties which permit hidden line or hidden surface elimination to be done more easily than in the general case. These properties are discussed in this paper, and an algorithm is given which exploits them
