Presentation delivered at the Annual Air and Waste Management Association conference in Long beach, California on June 26, 2014.
Innovative dispersion modeling techniques are presented including ARM2, EMVAP and the 50th percentile background concentration. Case study involves peaking engines that are used 250 hour per year. These intermittent sources are required to undergo a modeling evaluation in many states. Current modeling techniques grossly overestimate the emissions from these sporadic sources.
