ANALYTICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL ASSESSMENT OF HIGHWAY IMPACT ON AIR QUALITY: DATA ANALYSIS AND MODEL EVALUATION

Air pollution data were collected at six sites in Texas. The data have been screened, reduced, and put into 5-minute and 15-minute data records to form a large data base. These data are arranged for easy use for model development or evaluation. In this report, the development of a new pollutant dispersion model, TRAPS IIM is described. This new model, along with several popular models, is compared to experimental data. The advantages and disadvantages of the TRAP IIM model are discussed. A statistical treatment of instantaneous data from several instruments are analyzed. Power spectra, cross correlation, and probability densities of two data cases are discussed and interpreted.
