An air quality modeling analysis was performed in preparation of an air quality maintenance plan (AQMP) for the state of Rhode Island. The climatological dispersion model (CDM), developed by EPA, was used to project future air quality levels and to test maintenance strategies for the years 1978, 1980, and 1985. The objectives of the analysis were to determine areas in the metropolitan providence air quality maintenance area (AQMA) where annual national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS) for sulfur dioxide (SO2) and total suspended particulates (TSP) will be exceeded and to evaluate control strategies which will insure maintenance of standards in these areas through 1985. The existing emissions inventory for the state was updated to the base year of 1974, and validation and calibration of the model were performed using 1974 air quality measurements.
