Total Reactive Nitrogen: Regional Haze Impacts & Mitigation Options
Pier 5 Hotel
MANE-VU and MARAMA held the 2009 Science Meeting “Total Reactive Nitrogen: Regional Haze Impacts and Mitigation Options” on July 28-29, 2009 at the Pier 5 Hotel in downtown Baltimore, MD.
Science Meeting Overview:
At the recent NARSTO-MARAMA-NESCAUM-NYSERDA regional emissions inventory conference ammonia was identified as one of the key areas for improvement in the regional emissions inventory.
The purpose of the meeting was to increase understanding by state and local agency air quality managers in the region about:
Overview of Reactive Nitrogen in the Atmosphere, and Draft Overarching Recommendations of the EPA Integrated Nitrogen Committee
Considerations on Combined NOx-SOx Secondary National Ambient Air Quality Standards
Quantifying Emissions of Ammonia for Air Quality Analysis
Ammonia Emissions Estimation for Modeling – Current Practice
EPA’s 2008 Ammonia Inventory
Characterization of the Winter Midwestern and Northeastern Particulate Nitrate Bulge
Federal Support for Research on Air Quality Impacts of Agriculture
State of North Carolina Approach to Managing Ammonia Emissions
Valuation and Policy Options, Including Consideration of the Potential Use of Ammonia Emissions Reductions as Emissions Offsets
