The user's guide for the Urban Airshed Model (UAM) is divided into five volumes. Volume IV describes in detail the Emission Preprocessor System (EPS). The software package is used to process anthropogenic area and point source emissions for UAM from countywide average total hydrocarbon, NOx, and carbon monoxide emissions available from national emission inventories, such as the National Emissions Data System or the National Acid Precipitation Assessment Program. An appendix to the volume describes the Biogenic Emissions Inventory System (BEIS), which can be used to generate gridded, speciated biogenic emissions. Software for merging the anthropogenic area, mobile, and biogenic emission files into UAM input format is also described in the volume.
