Charles Chang of Computer Sciences Corporation prepared the model-ready emissions files for the study. The research presented here was performed under the Memorandum of Understanding between the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and under agreement number DW13921548. This work constitutes a contribution to the NOAA Air Quality Program. Although it has been reviewed by the EPA and NOAA and approved for publication, it does not necessarily reflect their policies or views.
