FUGITIVE DUST EMISSION STUDY FOR THE CITY OF ALBUQUERQUE
This study involved an emission inventory for fugitive dust sources in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Areas with a one mile radius were inventoried for five non-attaining particulate monitoring sites, with each site the center of the circle. Emissions from point sources within these areas were also included. Fugitive dust from unpaved roads and re-entrained dust from paved roads were the two primary contributors to air quality violations. The Air Quality Display Model (AQDM) was used to predict particulate concentrations and calculate the relative contribution of each point and area source.
