Air Emissions Modeling

2016v7.1 (alpha) Platform

The 2016 alpha modeling platform (2016v7.1) is based off the 2014 NEI version 2 and can be used to model the year 2016. The 2016 modeling platform is a collaborative process and represents the efforts of EPA, State representatives, and multi-jurisdictional planning organizations (MJOs). The 2016 hemispheric modeling platform was also created using the emissions from the 2016 alpha modeling platform. Data files, summaries and documentation are available for the 2016 alpha modeling platform using the links below. Documentation is also available for the 2016 hemispheric modeling platform.
