Modeling Mobile-Source Emissions
The Mobile Source Emissions Factor Model is a computer model developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for estimating emissions from motor vehicles. It is used in air-quality planning and to predict the effects of emissions reduction programs. This new report from the National Academies, Modeling Mobile-Source Emissions, originated in PL 104-204. It evaluates the model and identifies areas for improvement.
These series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on May 11, 2000. The full report is available online through the Web site of the National Academies Press.
