  • This presentation discusses standard techniques and processes used for radiation mapping (RM) via an AMS, Aerial Measurement System. The advantages and shortcomings of standard AMS-based RM are presented, along with some suggested areas for improvement. Issues touched on include what gets counted, data quality, background correction, data processing, altitude correction, isotope extraction, contouring, and time shift.
  • This package contains documentation of the Flexible Regional Emissions Data System (FREDS) for the 1980 NAPAP Emissions Inventory, FREDS source code, allocation factor files, and peripheral data files. FREDS extracts emissions data, pertinent modeling parameters (e.g., stack height, exhaust-gas temperature, etc.) and source-identification information from Emissions Inventory System (EIS) Master File records or preprocessed Statistical Analysis System (SAS) files and applies appropriate temporal, spatial, and pollutant-species allocation factors to derive a gridded, speciated, and temporally resolved emissions file suitable as input to regional scale atmospheric simulation models (such as the Regional Acid Deposition and Regional Oxidant Models). FREDS consists ofmore » five main modules which are used to apply allocation-factors to the annual emissions data, plus peripheral software used to ensure the quality of and maintain the allocation factor files. Separate programs are used to process point and area sources. Each module requires a user-defined control-options file. The five primary modules are the Model Data Extraction Module (MDEM), the Temporal Allocation Module (TAM), the Speciation Module (SM), the Spatial Allocation Module (SAM), and the Model Input Preprocessor (MIP). To maximize flexibility, FREDS allows the user to define and assign emissions of up to 15 pollutants (referenced by SAROAD code), the temporal scenario, spatial grid origin and grid cell size, and the number and relationship of pollutant subspecies. FREDS' modules are written in the language of the Statistical Analysis System...Software Description: The model is written in the SAS programming language for implementation on a IBM 3090 Computer using the OS/TSO operating system. Memory requirement is 1536 K bytes.« less
  • The main principles of developing the Basic Analysis of Reflectometry Data (BARD) software package, which is aimed at obtaining a unified (standardized) tool for analyzing the structure of thin multilayer films and nanostructures of different nature based on reflectometry data, are considered. This software package contains both traditionally used procedures for processing reflectometry data and the authors' original developments on the basis of new methods for carrying out and analyzing reflectometry experiments. The structure of the package, its functional possibilities, examples of application, and prospects of development are reviewed.
  • Title IV (Acid Deposition Control) of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 requires annual reductions of 10 million tons of sulfur dioxide and substantial reductions of nitrogen oxides from electric utilities. These reductions will occur in two phases with Phase 1 beginning in 1995. To ensure the reduction goals are met, affected utilities must monitor their emissions, perform quality assurance and quality control tests, and report the data to EPA as required by 40 CFR Part 75. EPA`s Emissions Tracking System (ETS) was developed to analyze all submitted data reports and to provide the annual emissions data needed tomore » determine whether utilities comply with their allowable SO{sub 2} emissions. EPA received the first quarterly reports from Phase 1 utilities at the end of January, 1994. A substantial number of these initial reports exhibited major problems and EPA required many utilities to improve and resubmit their reports. Data reports for the following three quarters of 1994 showed continual improvement as utilities gained experience in operating and improving their monitoring hardware and software and as EPA clarified published guidance. Helpful utility comments enabled EPA to correct and refine ETS. Phase 2 will affect approximately 700 additional plants. These plants will begin reporting their emissions data to EPA at the beginning of May, 1995. EPA is improving data handling and processing procedures and expanding the ETS software system capabilities to receive and process the substantial increase in submitted data during 1995.« less
