A pollutant emissions inventory was prepared for the Los Angeles Basin for use in the modeling of the transport, diffusion, and reaction of atmospheric contamination. Pollutant sources were grouped into five categories--automobiles (and other motor vehicles), aircraft, power plants, refineries and distributed fixed sources. Emissions rates for a 2 x 2 mile grid system covering the Basin were compiled for nitrogen exides, carbon monoxide, and hydrocarbons. It is the purpose of this report to document all modifications and extensions that were made to the emissions inventory. This report is segmented into sections entitled: General; Automotive Emissions; Revisions of the Aircraft Emissions Inventory; Fixed Source Emissions - Power Plants; and Fixed Source Emissions - Distributed Sources and Refineries.
