This webinar will introduce the Exceptional Event Decision Support System (EE DSS) of which purpose is to identify and to document observations that are candidates for exceptional event flagging. This session is focused on screening the AQS data for exceedances above "normal" values and to indicate potential smoke or dust causes. Based on this screening, States can identify candidate samples for EE flagging. The EE DSS is to support the States in their submission of EE flags for 2012, by the July 1, 2012 deadline. The 90-minute webinar we will cover the following topics:

Note: There will be another webinar at the end of May following up on this same topic, incorporating feedback from State analysts. The outcome of these webinars will be a list of candidate EE flag observations. These are not "official"; the final decision to use these observations is still the responsibility of the submitting State.

The '''main output''' of this decision support effort will be a national-scale list of candidate samples (these are not "official") for EE flagging for 2010-2012. Based on this screening, States can identify and select candidate samples for EE flagging, to be submitted to EPA by the July 1, 2013 deadline. The anticipated '''outcomes''' and benefits of the EE Decision Support will include: reduction of the effort required by the States for EE flagging as well as a simpler and more uniform EE flag evaluation process by the EPA Regions.

This series of two webinars will introduce the Exceptional Event Decision Support System (EE DSS) of which purpose is to identify and to document observations that are candidates for exceptional event flagging. The first session will be focused on screening the AQS data for exceedances above "normal" values and to indicate potential smoke or dust causes. The webinars and the associated wiki workspace are provided to give States and EPA Regions the opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback on how to improve the EE DSS. A second webinar is planned for the end of May on the same topics, incorporating feedback from State analysts and pursuing further flagging use cases.

The main output of this decision support effort will be a national-scale list of candidate samples (these are not "official") for EE flagging for 2010-2012. Based on this screening, States can identify and select candidate samples for EE flagging, to be submitted to EPA by the July 1, 2013 deadline. The anticipated outcomes and benefits of the EE Decision Support will include: reduction of the effort required by the States for EE flagging as well as a simpler and more uniform EE flag evaluation process by the EPA Regions.
