Short summary
The spatial and temporal distribution of anthropogenic heat emissions over the YRD region was developed. These gridded AH emissions were incorporated into the modified WRF/Chem model with the seasonal and diurnal variation. The impacts of AH on meteorology and chemical variables were evaluated. The results show that the anthropogenic heat inputs improved the meteorology and air pollution predictions from WRF/Chem in and around large urban areas.
