Citation:

Kosusko, Mike, P. Bhave, T. Workgroup, Y. Hsu, F. Divita, AND J. Dorn. US EPA's SPECIATE 4.4 Database: Development and Uses. Presented at 13th Annual CMAS Conference, Chapel Hill, NC, October 27 - 29, 2014.

Impact/Purpose:

The proposed paper and presentation describe the SPECIATE 4.4 database, provide specific examples of its use, and make recommendations for future improvements. The CMAS audience consists of end users of emissions data (e.g. developers of emissions inventories, source emissions estimators, and users of CMB receptor models). The emissions profiles in SPECIATE allow these end users to provide more accurate information to policy makers.

Description:

SPECIATE is the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) repository of volatile organic gas and particulate matter (PM) speciation profiles of air pollution sources. EPA released SPECIATE 4.4 in early 2014 and, in total, the SPECIATE 4.4 database includes 5,728 PM, volatile organic compound (VOC), total organic gases (TOG), and Other Gases profiles.
