Short summary
The efficacy of emission policies is explored by coarse resolution modeling applications. These were shown to be biased, overestimating that efficacy indicated in simulations with refined resolution. In order to improve our assessments, we need to quantify those biases. In this study we show that the ozone bias of the coarse run is reduced by 40% by adopting higher resolution emissions. For PM2.5, the coarse run cannot selectively incorporate local scale features in order to reduce model error.
