Goals of the Ao. H Phase 2 Analysis n n Refine Phase 1 techniques

Goals of the Ao. H Phase 2 Analysis n n Refine Phase 1 techniques for use in Phase 2. Reduce uncertainty and address the remaining uncertainty in modeled data and attribution results. Analyze the differences between modeled results for 2002 and the projected 2018 base case and various other control strategy scenarios. Develop additional analytical approaches (e. g. , receptor modeling, trends analysis, determination of the representativeness of baseline data set).

Goals of the Ao. H Phase 2 TSS Project n n n Provide a

Goals of the Ao. H Phase 2 TSS Project n n n Provide a single web-based location for access and display of technical data, display of analytical results, and the reference location for related documentation to support the regional haze implementation plans. Provide specific analysis tools to synthesize technical and contextual data and GIS layers, conduct analyses, and store results for subregional/local/Class I areaspecific regional haze planning. Provide the analysis and display tools for Phase 2 analyses, and the technical support documentation for WRAP region SIPs and TIPs for regional haze.

Work Plan Tasks – Analysis Project n n n Task 1: Solicit and define

Work Plan Tasks – Analysis Project n n n Task 1: Solicit and define user requirements from the appropriate WRAP work groups. Task 2: Prepare suite of data products based on final 2002 emissions, modeling, and attribution results. Task 3: Define the weight of evidence (WOE) approach to be applied to Ao. H Phase 2 data. Task 4: Interpret 2018 results and implications for showing progress under the Regional Haze Rule. Task 5: Prepare draft and final Ao. H Phase 2 analysis report. (Task 11: Travel to provide progress reports and solicit project feedback at WRAP meetings. )

Work Plan Tasks – TSS Project n n n n Task 6: Perform TSS

Work Plan Tasks – TSS Project n n n n Task 6: Perform TSS requirements analysis and scoping study. Task 7 a: Acquire and prepare the relevant databases. Task 7 b: Summarize and evaluate WRAP Dust inventory. Task 8: Develop data review interfaces based on user requirements. Task 9: Develop data exchange protocols and guidelines. Task 10: Develop method to capture on-line user feedback. Task 11: Travel to provide progress reports and solicit project feedback at WRAP meetings.

TSS Data Summary Products n n n Emissions, monitoring, modeling, and attribution results will be housed in on-line databases User requests will combine data with contextual information and/or GIS layers (if appropriate) ARS and Ao. H work group will develop a Weight of Evidence (WOE) approach for integrating results Scoping study (Task 6) will determine the level of sophistication achievable for data products during project All data used for 2007 SIPS/TIPS will be version controlled to keep it separate from new data and information added to the TSS over time

TSS Scoping Study Outline n Identify, understand, and refine the user/system requirements n n n Explore the architectural options n n Match products types with user needs (e. g. , SIP outline) Identify a set of case studies that illustrate the system’s use Select and evaluate a candidate architecture (feasibility, available expertise) Revisit system requirements – changes needed? Finalize selection: create set of documents and diagrams that describe system architecture, team member roles Generate a detailed project plan n What is feasible with available time/funds? What cannot be done at this time? Minimum requirement: MUST support SIP preparation
