Attainment Demonstration Modeling for the Denver Metro/North Front Range 2017 8-Hour Ozone State Implementation Plan (SIP) – Draft Modeling Protocol


The RAQC is in the process of conducting modeling needed to demonstrate attainment of the current March 2008 ozone National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) in Denver Metro/North Front Range region by 2017.  This Modeling Protocol guides the technical details of a modeling study and provides a formal framework within which the scientific assumptions, operational details, commitments and expectations of the various participants can be set forth explicitly and means for resolution of potential differences of technical and policy opinion can be worked out openly and within prescribed time and budget constraints.  Current modeling is being carried out by a contracting team consisting of Ramboll Environ US Corporation and Alpine Geophysics, LLC under contract to the Regional Air Quality Council (RAQC).
