Assessment of the environmental impact resulting from the operation of highways often requires some form of mathematical simulation. This is certainly true for estimating the environmental effect of air contaminants contained in the exhaust of automobiles. A mathematical approach generally known as the "California Line Source Model" was developed in 1972 by the California Department of Transportation and widely used to estimate highway (project-level) impact on air quality. An updated version of the California model was developed in January 1975 by the California Department of Transportation. The new Model is designated and should be referenced as CALINE-2 (January 1975 version). The purpose of this manual is to document the computer program written to execute CALINE-2. /FHWA/
