The addendum provides additional information regarding the performance of four rural air quality simulation models using SO2 air quality and a modelers data base assembled for the Kincaid Power Plant. The report contains numerous tabulations of each model's performance in terms of statistical measures recommended by the AMS. The four models evaluated included MPTER (EPA), PPSP (Martin Marietta Corp), MPSDM (ERT) and TEM-8A (Texas Air Control Board). Results from this evaluation were similar in many ways to those obtained from Clifty Creek and Muskingum River. PPSP clearly over-predicted concentrations in almost every data category while MPSDM, MPTER, and TEM exhibited relatively small but detectable biases depending on averaging period and data category.
