Quantifying Source Contributions to

O3and PM2.5 Pollution Episodes

Across the Eastern U.S.

TT PIs: Arlene Fiore (CU/LDEO), Tracey Holloway (U WI)

AQAST TT Members: Greg Carmichael (U Iowa), Daniel Cohan (Rice U), Bryan Duncan (NASA GSFC), DavenHenze (CU-Boulder), Edward Hyer (NRL), Daniel Jacob (Harvard), Russ Dickerson (U MD), Gabriele Pfister (NCAR)

Designing effective SIPs requires knowledge of source contributions to O3 and PM2.5 pollution episodes

Observed pollution levels are the summation of

in-state, out-of-state, international and natural sources

AQAST can help quantify these components, but how can we be most effective?

 Build a framework for continued communication with the stakeholders

  • AQAST and AQMs will work together to identify high-

  • Transport events
  • Inter-state
  • Wildfire
  • International
  • Source attribution
  • Several horizontal resolutions
  • Forward/adjoint
  • HTAP simulations
  • Connect suborbital and space-based information
  • Size of episode
  • Areal extent
  • Duration
  • Transport

For each episode, organically determine best use of AQAST resources

(which team members, tools)

slide4

Deliverables & Expected AQ outcomes

1. Establishment of a stakeholder advisory committee (set priorities)

 Build broader engagement between AQAST and state-level AQMs

2. For each episode, generate reports with technical details of approach in appendices (“the recipe” for the analysis)

 New info / approaches to support SIP development

 Build capacity by providing case studies for future analyses

3. Develop website archive of reports, and links to related AQAST resources, including coordination with RSIG TT activity, other web tools

 Broader dissemination of approaches & findings

4. Online interactive graphics to facilitate exploration of model and satellite data

 Developing user-friendlyspace-based and model products to provide information on contributions from transported pollution

slide5

Discussion points for tomorrow

  • What are our criteria for episode selection (“priority”)
  • regional-scale? multi-day? multi-state? typical vs. unusual?
  • What information will we request from AQMs prior to first phone call?
  • Which years are we best equipped to deliver results?
    • Compile a list of periods we’re already analyzing, and also what is additionally possible in the next 3-12 months.
    • Do these differ for PM2.5 and O3?
    • Provide these as list of possibilities to AQ agency contacts
  • Proposed timeline:
    • FEB: solicit info from AQMs+ short overview of TT framework
    • MAR: 1st phone call
    • AQAST7: Present preliminary findings
