Application of statistical tests to the RAM (Real-Time Air-Quality Model) using the RAPS (Regional Air Pollution Study) data base is reported. Earlier work described the statistical tests in detail. Application of the statistical tests as described herein fulfilled two purposes: to quantify the overall performance of the RAM and to provide diagnostic information about the causes of poor model performance. Results of the diagnostic tests serve to identify specific weaknesses in the model formulation and some localized errors in the emission inventory. Two microfiche accompany this report: 1976 STL SO2 RAM HOURLY DATA BASE, and 1976 STL SO2 RAM EVALUATION PROGRAM LISTINGS. This model is part of the UNAMAP version 4 software package.
