LADCO Regional Haze TSD – Second Implementation Period

LADCO prepared this Technical Support Document (TSD) to support the development of regional haze state implementation plans (SIPs) for the second haze implementation period. The approaches documented here include emissions inventory processing; chemical transport modeling and evaluation; analysis of ambient monitoring data for haze species; and the calculation of reasonable progress metrics for comparison to regional haze goals. LADCO presents the modeling and analysis results for two base years (2011 and 2016), both projected to 2028, in order to provide robust assessment of expected future year air quality.
