The Desmond Hotel and Conference Center
The workshop focused on improving regional emission inventories was sponsored by MARAMA, NESCAUM, NYSERDA and NARSTO. The two-day workshop was held on November 12 -13 at The Desmond Hotel and Conference Center in Albany, New York.
The purpose of the workshop was to go beyond the traditional “emission inventory” framework to fundamentally improve spatial and temporal estimates of emissions. The goal was to use these refined estimates of emissions not only for the standard SIP?type modeling, but also for the purposes of human exposures, for developing “micro inventories,” (inventories at a fine spatial scale), trend analysis, and for program accountability.
The workshop started with a plenary session that established a broad outline of main topics
