Ozone Isopleth Plotting Package (Research Version) (OZIPR) is a trajectory-based air quality simulation model that can be used with complex chemical kinetics mechanisms to relate ozone concentrations to initial levels of organic and oxides of nitrogens (NOx) precursors. OZIPR is based on previous versions of EPA's Ozone Isopleth Plotting Program, but it contains improved and expanded capabilities that make the model useful for research purposes. It serves the dual purpose of providing: (1) a simple moving box model capable of using detailed chemistry, emissions and various meteorological parameters to predict oxidant formation and (2) procedures through which the Empirical Kinetics Modeling Approach (EKMA) can be implemented for calculating emission reductions needed to achieve the National Ambient Air Quality Standard for ozone. The program is designed to run on an IBM PC/AT or fully compatible personal computer. The software package includes the executable program as well as the source code and input/output files for nine examples.
