To study the sensitivity of the DECSO algorithm to the type of model, we implemented two versions of CHIMERE, V2013 and V2006, using two emission inventories, MEIC and INTEX-B, to simulate the air quality over east China in 2010. The comparisons of model results with measurements indicate that MEIC and CHIMERE V2013 are better than INTEX-B and CHIMERE V2006. From the results of the two chemical transport models, the Root-Mean Square Error (RMSE) is analysed to give an indication of the model error in DECSO.
