The discussion is directed to users of the Climatological Dispersion Model (CDM) who are interested in that model's sensitivity to the manner in which the area-source emissions are specified. The CDM was used to estimate annual average SO2 concentrations from area-source emissions for 13 locations in the St. Louis metropolitan area for 1976. The SO2 area source emissions inventory used was developed as part of the St. Louis Regional Air Pollution Study; the inventory specifies the SO2 emissions over a 200 km east-west by 140 km north-south region.
