Guidance is provided to potential model users on the capabilities of the Airshed Model, its data requirements, and its application to control strategy analyses. The Airshed Model is an urban-scale, grid-based, photochemical dispersion model. Its greatest utility lies in studying the relationship of emissions of volatile organic compounds and nitrogen oxides to ambient ozone levels observed in major metropolitan areas. However, the model may be used to estimate ambient short-term concentrations of nitrogen dioxide and carbon monoxide as well. The guideline should enable air pollution control agencies and others to carry out the planning activities and to evaluate the level of resources needed to apply the model.
