Step 3. Calculate future design values for all monitoring sites in the nonattainment area.
Multiply the observed baseline design values obtained in Step 1 times the relative response
factors obtained in Step 2.
In Table 4.2, we see (column (2)) that the baseline observed design value at monitor site I
is 102.0 ppb. Using Equation (3.1), the predicted future design value for monitor site I is,
(DVF)I = (102.0 ppb) (0.867) = 88.434 ppb = 88 ppb
Note that the final future design value istruncated36 and in this example, the modeled attainment
test is not passed at monitor site I.
36This effectively defines attainment in the modeled test as <= 84.999 ppb and
nonattainment as >= 85.0 ppb.
5.0 What Are The Modeled Attainment Tests For The Two PM2.5 NAAQS?
In this section, we begin by illustrating the monitored tests for the annual and 24-hour
NAAQS. We next identify how to derive needed inputs from available modeled data for the two
modeled attainment tests and highlight some implications that result from the recommended
tests. We conclude the section by describing a primary PM2.5 analysis which may be used to
better capture the contributions of primary PM2.5 to nonattainment and the benefits of controlling
primary PM2.5 in areas with relatively large contributions from primary sources.
5.1 What Is The Recommended Modeled Attainment Test For The Annual
As described in section 2, the monitored attainment test for PM2.5 utilizes both PM2.5 and
individual PM2.5 component species. We therefore call the attainment test for PM2.5, the
Speciated Modeled Attainment Test (SMAT). A separate RRF is calculated for each PM2.5
species. In order to perform the recommended modeled attainment test, States should divide
observed mass concentrations of PM2.5 into 7 components (plus passive mass):
n601 - n602 - n603 - n604 - n605 - n606 - n607 - n608 - n609 - n610 - n611 - n612 - n613 - n614 - n615 - n616 - n617 - n618 - n619 - n620 - n621 - n622 - n623 - n624 - n625 - n626 - n627 - n628 - n629 - n630 - n631 - n632 - n633 - n634 - n635 - n636 - n637 - n638 - n639 - n640 - n641 - n642 - n643 - n644 - n645 - n646 - n647 - n648 - n649 - n650
