WRAP RMC Goals

  • Provide annual modeling of regional haze to support development of Section 309 and 308 SIPs and TIPs.
  • Improve accuracy of key model inputs.
  • Capacity Building - Provide applied training in use of models.
  • Technology transfer of models and datasets to States/Tribes.
  • Project Timeline: January 2001 to December 2002
slide4

RMC Modeling Goals

  • Section 309 SIPs/TIPs.
    • Compare REMSAD and Models-3/CMAQ.
    • Select a model for annual simulations.
    • Complete model runs for 1996 Base Case, 2018 Base Case and 6 emissions control scenarios.
    • Due date: 309 models originally targeted for 1/02
    • Provide Training and Transfer datasets and models to States/Tribes.
slide5

RMC Modeling Goals

  • Section 308 SIPs/TIPs
    • Improved Emissions Inventories.
    • Evaluate Meteorology and Met processing.
    • Test New Aerosol Formation Mechanisms.
    • Updated Gas Phase Chemistry (RACM or SAPRC).
    • Finer Resolution Nested Domains.

Jump Start Project

Provides support for rapid setup and evaluation of model scenarios.

model evaluation and model selection for section 309
REMSAD and CMAQ Comparison completed in January, 2002.

CMAQ was selected for subsequent modeling of emissions reduction strategies.
