Estimating the Transfer and Deposition of Dioxin and Atrzine to the Great Lakes Basin With the Noaa Hysplit Model An Overview

Abstract:Over the last few years, the International Joint Commission has been supporting development of a PC-based transfer model, derived from the HYSPLIT model created at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), to determine, in a cost-effective way, the extent of deposition of selected persistent toxic substances to the Great Lakes from US and Canadian sources and source regions. Outputs for dioxin and atrazine will be described, quantifying the percentage of emissions of these substances from specific point and county level sources which will be deposited in Lake Superior. The impact of specific sources and source categories will be considered. The authors believe this technology will prove useful as a tool in developing a strategy for further control of these sources.

The authors of this paper, while acknowledging the support of their parent agencies, note that the comments, findings, and conclusions are the authors' own and not necessarily representative of the International Joint Commission, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and/or the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources who assisted in and supported this work.
