MODELING TOTAL VEHICLE EMISSIONS ON A REGIONAL LEVEL

This paper presents a dynamic mathematical model for the projection of total annual emissions of hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, and nitrogen oxides from mobile sources in urban regions. The model consists of three subsystems: vehicle population, vehicle activity, and vehicle emission rates. The model is applied through the use of four separate vehicle emission compliance schedules to the Albany-Schenectady-Troy Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area (SMSA), based on 1964-1970 data. Emission projections for the period 1971-1990 are shown in graphical form.
