The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Atmospheric Modeling Division is engaged in a number of research projects that are leading to advances in emissions modeling of airborne substances. Two of these projects, air quality forecast modeling and global climate change modeling, are presented in other papers at this conference. This paper briefly highlights the advances in the following areas: (1) Ammonia emissions - development and application of an inversion technique for refining seasonal and annual estimates of ammonia; (2) Biogenic emissions - development and integration of the third generation of the Biogenic Emissions Inventory System (BEIS3); (3) Fugitive dust emissions - development and testing of geographical databases and a dynamic algorithm for making episodic estimates of wind blown fugitive dust; (4) Sea salt emissions - development of an algorithm for estimating emissions originating from oceans; (5) SMOKE - support and refinements to the Sparse Matrix Operational Kernel Emissions (SMOKE) modeling system; and (6) Wildlife and prescribed burn emissions - collaboration with the National Park Service on development of the Community Smoke Emissions Model (CSEM).
