TASSIM: A TRANSPORTATION AND AIR SHED SIMULATION MODEL, VOLUME 1. CASE STUDY OF THE BOSTON REGION

The TASSIM model integrates an urban transportation planning model, vehicle emission factors, and simple air diffusion models in a simulation framework that can be used to analyze the air quality effects of transportation policies. The model is spatially disaggregated, and it is compatible with data sources available in many metropolitan areas. This volume briefly describes the structure of the model and then analyzes several model applications that simulate for Boston the air quality effects of transportation control land use, and stationary source policies. The transportation control policies are evaluated in a cost effectiveness framework. The final sections consider possible extensions of the model and outline the model's computational aspects.
