The Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) decided to update the area source algorithm in ISC2 (U.S. EPA, 1992) using the approach contained in PAL. At about the same time the Office of Research and Development in EPA was involved in a project to improve the computational efficiency of the area source algorithm in PAL. It is more efficient version of the PAL area source algorithm that has been implemented in ISC2 and will be described in the paper. In addition, the improved area source algorithm is utilized in a new approach to modeling open-pit sources.
