Air Quality Modeling

Air quality models are used as a basis to assess the impact of sources of emissions and to develop control strategies. These strategies are applied to the State Implementation Plan revisions to provide a basis for approvable control strategies. The modeling is also used for new source reviews, and prevention of significant deterioration review. EPA has developed a limited number of models suitable for regulatory application. These air quality models are usually computerized and require high-powered systems for operation. All the regulatory air quality models and guidance intended for use by State, local agencies, and all interested parties have been made available through the SCRAM area on the EPA's Technology Transfer Network (TTN) Bulletin Board System (BBS). The role of the region is to ensure consistency in the application of air quality models for regulatory purposes by routinely working with the States and local agencies in the Region.
