SUPPORTIVE DATA AND METHODS FOR THE EVALUATION OF AIRPOL-4

The data and methods employed in the analysis and comparative evaluation of the Virginia (AIRPOL-4), California (CALAIR) and EPA (HIWAY) line-source prediction models (for predicting carbon monoxide concentrations) are detailed. All test sites are described, and the observed meterological, traffic, and receptor location parameters for each sampling period for each site are detailed. The imputs for each of the models for each sampling period are listed, as well as the observed and predicted carbon monoxide levels at each receptor location for each sampling period. The performance statistics of each of the prediction models for each site are presented, and the data and performance statistics relative to the meteorological and geometric parameters encountered in the study are also presented. The relationship between observed airport and roadside wind speeds is detailed. The computer programs involved are presented, and the Turner Pasquill stability class algorithms used in the AIRPOL study are detailed.
