This presentation provides guidance on downloading files for the AVoided Emissions and geneRation Tool (AVERT) for use in SMOKE. The AVERT Main Module can produce output files for the Sparse Matrix Operator Kernel Emissions (SMOKE) modeling system, which is designed to create gridded, speciated, hourly emissions for input into air quality models such as CMAQ, REMSAD, CAMX, and UAM.

You may need a PDF reader to view some of the files on this page. See EPA’s About PDF page to learn more.
