Contents Notes
During the past few years, several research projects have been conducted to reconstruct historic air pollution emission trends in the U.S. This report compares in detail the emission estimates derived by Gschwandtner et al. and Husar and attempts to determine the methodoligical[sp] differences that result indifferent emission estimates. In addition, the U.S. EPA historical trends, the electric utilities emissions estimates, and the NAPAP monthly trends inventory are compared to Gschwandtner's inventory. The inventories' differing objectives and reasons for the slightly varying emissions estimates are explained. On the national level, all estimates are in reasonable agreement. One objective of this study was to determine a basis for changing any of the existing estimates in order to minimize or eliminate unnecessary differences in reported national total emissions for common years. A revised set of NO[subscript x] and SOb2s emission estimates, based primarily on Gschwandtner and EPA trends, is recommended for use in future analyses utilizing historic emission estimates.
