The analysis presented in this document supports the EPA’s Final Cross-State Air Pollution Rule Update for the 2008 Ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standards (CSAPR Update). This TSD includes analysis to quantify upwind state emissions that significantly contribute to nonattainment or interfere with maintenance of the 2008 ozone NAAQS in downwind states and quantification of emission budgets (i.e., limits on emissions). The analysis is described in Section VI of the preamble to the final rule. This TSD also broadly describes how the EPA used the Integrated Planning Model (IPM) to inform air quality modeling, budget setting, and policy analysis aspects of this rule.You may need Adobe Reader to view files on this page.
