GIS Mapping AirData:
These exercises is designed to provide step-by-step instructions on how to view data on sources of air pollution available from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) using ArcInfo.
Trajectory Modeling: [pdf]
A Powerful Tool for Identifying Air Pollution Sources. Glenn Gehring (TAMS Technology Specialist II) has created an effective step-by-step guide on using the HYSPLIT program to generate a simple backward trajectory and integrate it into a GIS program. There is also a guide to downloading emission inventory data from EPA's AirData website and integrating the data into a GIS program.
Plugging-in data and examining pollution sources, prevailing wind direction, meteorological conditions, backward trajectories and dispersion plumes during poor air quality events can give a tribal air professional a solid understanding of area sources and pollutants impacting the reservation.
