CALPUFF Modeling to Estimate Acid Deposition ...
Exponent was retained by CEMA to conduct CALPUFF modeling to estimate acid deposition for use by the MAGIC model, which will determine whether acid deposition-related changes to lakes and soils will exceed defined thresholds. The work includes (a) application of protocol for a base assessment using CALPUFF to the Acid Deposition Management Framework (ADMF) using historical, baseline, and future emissions inventories; (b) CALPUFF modeling to meet the needs of the ADMF and the Interim Nitrogen (Eutrophication) Management Recommendations and Work Plan (NEP), including the prediction of annual dry, wet, and total deposition of acidifying compounds and nitrogen compounds in the Lower Athabasca Region; (c) provide predicted acid deposition inputs for the MAGIC model; and (d) conduct comparisons of the CALPUFF and CMAQ results with each other and to monitoring data.
