3SAQS 2008b Modeling Platform


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).
