  • The choice of appropriate parameter values for mathematical models that are meant to described long-term (decades or longer) changes in hydrochemical catchment response to atmospheric deposition is difficult because long time series of observations are generally unavailable. Some information about the range (or distribution) of stream chemistry variables across a given region is often available, however, and this should provide useful guidance in selecting allowable values for parameters for regional application of the model. A method is developed for using data that describe the present-day distribution of stream water chemistry in a region to constrain allowable ranges of parameters inmore » a mathematical model and to infer particular parameter combinations that are inconsistent with observations. A simple model of catchment sulfate dynamics using measured sulfate concentrations from several streams in Shenandoah National Park, Virginia is applied from using the method. Acceptable parameter combinations for this case are well defined by a single linear axis. Extrapolation of the distribution of sulfate concentrations into the future using these acceptable parameter combinations suggests that a shift in mean sulfate concentration in the southwest section of the park would be detectable with 90% certainty 8 to 10 years hence, assuming that atmospheric deposition remains constant.« less
  • The authors developed a method for calculating modeling uncertainty estimates (CUE) using monitoring data collected at a limited number of receptor sites. An overview of the CUE method is presented. Meteorological and emissions data are fed to a dispersion model, which may be of any type. The CUE method allows one to calculate an uncertainty distribution that describes the likely range of design values that would have been observed had monitoring data been available at each model receptor site. The use of the CUE method is illustrated by applying it to a point source of SO/sub 2/ emission and calculatingmore » various probabilities of NAAQS attainment and emission limits. The original example is slightly modified to illustrate how the results would have changed had the model performed somewhat differently in predicting observed design values. Specifically, we altered the bias and precision of the model predictions. The results illustrate the use of the CUE method in regulatory applications. In addition, they point out the ways in which bias and precision can alter the efficacy of regulatory decisions which have been made on the basis of model results.« less
