Questions and problems with the data, and problems with the software in the platform release package are examples of the types of issues to post to the forum. The Collaborative workgroup co-leads will work through the reported issues and assimilate changes to the platform into the 2016 version1 platform.
2016beta Platform Support/Issues Forum @ CMAS Center
A coordination workgroup, ten sector workgroups, and a modeling workgroup were staffed by over 245 state and regional air agency, EPA, and Federal Land Manager employees. The work of the sector workgroups to build 2016 base year and future year inventories is documented in a series of sector-specific specification sheets below. These specification sheets detail the origin of the inventories and ancillary data used to simulate criteria pollutant, and in many cases hazardous air pollutant, emissions for the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.
The summary stacked bar plots below compare U.S. total criteria pollutant emissions for the 2016beta platform back to 2011 and 2014 base and future year emissions.
The documentation is available as a separate document for each modeling sector:
Descriptions of the emissions platform cases shown in the plots below are as follows:
LADCO Plot Viewer
Pre-generated, graphical emissions summaries included bar charts, thematic maps, and gridded maps
IWDW Emissions Review Tool
Interactive website with capabilities to generate customized bar charts and maps of the 2016beta and future year emissions
Collaborative 2016beta Google Drive
Folders by inventory sectors with zip files of tabulated SMOKE report emissions report files. See the zip file tagged "annual_reports" in each sector directory.

Particular acknowledgement of the workgroup co-leads is due, as they worked to recruit, organize, and lead their workgroups through the Collaborative platform development and documentation process.
