Leveraging grid computing technology, i.e. the visualization of distributed computing and data resources such as processing, network bandwidth and storage capacity to create a single system image, we present a Grid Air Quality Forecast System (G-AQFS). The modeling system consists of meteorological and dispersion models coupled in cascade. The computational workflow of the modeling system is defined by means of DAGs (direct acyclic graph). A simple system is presented to manage and schedule the computational grid resources. As case study the system has been applied over Salento area, in the Apulia region (South-eastern Italy), to simulate ground level ozone concentration. Model predictions have been compared with field measurements, with reasonable results.
