Emission estimates of volatile organic compounds (VOC) from natural sources (biogenic emissions) are comparable to emissions from anthropogenic sources in some regions of the U.S. Results from a previous modeling study indicated that inclusion of biogenic emissions can substantially increase anthropogenic VOC control requirements needed to lower peak ozone to the level of the National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS). The results reported here were developed from analyses based on the Urban Airshed Model (UAM), a gridded photochemical simulation model offering a more complete characterization of the processes leading to ozone formation than the model used in the previous study. Results from a series of simulations conducted in parallel with and without biogenic emissions are presented.
