The 3SAQS project performed photochemical grid modeling for the year 2008 using the Comprehensive Air Quality Model with Extensions (CAMx) version 5.41
. The 3SAQS 2008 Modeling Protocol
details the CAMx configuration and justification for why it was chosen for the 3SAQS. Version B of the 3SAQS base 2008 modeling platform (3SAQS_Base08b) includes CAMx results for 36-km and 12-km modeling domains
. The 3SAQS 2008b platform includes neither a Community Multiscale Air Quality (CMAQ) model simulation nor a 4-km modeling domain. The 3SAQS 2008b platform was derived from the West-wide Jumpstart Air Quality Modeling Study (WestJumpAQMS
) final 2008 modeling platform and differs only in targeted changes to the emissions data in the states of Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming. The 3SAQS 2008b modeling platform includes a future projection year (2020).
