Find: Is the control strategy simulated in this model analysis sufficient to meet the uniform rate

of progress in this Class I area?

Solution:

Step 1. Using monitored data, rank baseline visibility for each day with PM10, PM2.5 and

speciated PM2.5 measurements within a Class I area.

First, estimate the extinction coefficient for each day with the needed PM measurements.

This is done using the information in table 6.2 with Equation (6.1). For day 1 in year 1, the

current extinction coefficient is:

bext = (3)(1.7)[4.53] + (3)(1.7)[2.23] + (4)(1)[3.37] + (10)[0.89] + (1)[0.32] + (0.6)[7.33]

+ 10

bext = 71.6 Mm-1

Then convert extinction into deciviews:

dv = 10 * ln(71.6/10) = 19.7 dv

Current extinction coefficients and deciviews for the remaining 9 days with monitored data in

year 1 are calculated in a similar manner. The days are then ranked. The day with the highest

deciviews (i.e., worst visibility) is given a rank of “1". The results of these calculations are

displayed in the table 6.3 below. Based on these rankings, days 6 and 7 comprise the 20% of

days with worst visibility. Days 1 and 10 comprise the 20% of days with best visibility
