Short summary
This paper is focused on analyzing the coupled behavior between dispersion of reactive pollutants and atmospheric dynamics in different atmospheric conditions using a computational fluid dynamics model. It allows one to provide the selection of the chemical reactions needed that gives the best compromise between accuracy in modeling NO and NO2 dispersion in the streets and the computational time required. The conclusions can be applied to future studies about modeling air quality in cities.
