The guide is intended to function as a manual for the Economic Growth Analysis System (E-GAS). The objective of the report was to describe the development of a prototype E-GAS modeling system. The E-GAS model will be used to project emissions inventories of volatile organic compounds, oxides of nitrogen, and carbon monoxide for ozone nonattainment areas and Regional Oxidation Model (ROM) modeling regions. The guide describes in detail the workings of the E-GAS computer modeling software, and its relationships with internal modeling software components, like Regional Economic Models, Inc. (REMI) models, and external software, like ROM, the Aerometric Information Retrieval System (AIRS), and the Urban Airshed Model (UAM). The guide describes all inputs and outputs from the software, and includes a description of all variables used by the E-GAS system.
