As part of the St. Louis Regional Air Pollution Study (RAPS), a heat emission inventory has been assembled. Heat emissions to the atmosphere originate, directly or indirectly, from the combustion of fossil fuels (there are no nuclear plants in the St. Louis AQCR). With the exception of a small amount of energy radiated into space as light, and the energy carried out of the AQCR by cooling water (primarily the Mississippi River), all of the energy released by the combustion of fuels is sooner or later released to the atmosphere as heat, either at the point of production (the power stations) or where it is consumed. This report deals with heat emissions from point sources as well as area sources. Heat emissions from point sources account for about 11 percent in the AQCR. Point source emissions are, however, in the form of concentrated plumes, while other heat emissions are diffused. Thus, the meteorological dispersion behavior of these sources is likely to be quite different.
