EE DSS Webinar
This webinar is focused on screening the AQS data for exceedances above "normal" values using the Exceptional Event Decision Support System (EE DSS). Based on this screening, States can identify candidate samples for EE flagging.
The hour and a half webinar will have three parts:
- What are exceptional events?
- Description of steps (1) state observation (2) compare to standard - Ozone (daily max), PM2.5 (daily max, yearly average), PM10 (daily max) (3) Four steps that mgmt has to consider
- We have tool set that are nationally applicable for both flag id and documentation therefore there is a decision support system that is to be applicable to any of the exceedance types, regardless of cause, pollutant, and of region.
- Identify two dates flag submission (July 1) and documentation submission (Dec. 15)
- Priority is on screening for flagging event and what is the potential cause - categories
- Intro to the EE DSS by Rudy Husar, Washington University;
EE DSS is to screen for exceedances from all four standards (those above normal variations) and identify the type of cause (by EPA category).
Describe steps and how EE DSS deals with them
- Exceeding normal variation
- Exploration of potential causes (Dust/smoke- NAAPS; Fire pixels, wind speeds etc, console)
- Hands-on session to try the EE DSS for your own State;
- List of all exceedances for each of standards above normal and corresponding "high normal" value in 2012 to see how far above normal you are; cut-off for how far above normal is flexible. - to be distributed
- Compare list to NAAPS dust/smoke
- Some easily attributable
- Left over neither dust or smoke
- Wrap-up Q&A
