Chemical Mass Balance Model
Entry ID: CMB8


Summary
Abstract: The Chemical Mass Balance (CMB) Model EPA-CMBv8.2 is one of several receptor models that has been applied to air quality problems over the last two decades. Based on an effective-variance least squares method (EVLS), EPA has supported CMB as a regulatory planning tool through its approval of numerous State Implementation Plans (SIPs) which have a source apportionment component. CMB requires speciated profiles of potentially contributing sources and the corresponding ambient data from analyzed samples collected at a single receptor site. CMB is ideal for localized nonattainment problems and has proven to be a useful tool in applications where steady-state Gaussian plume models are inappropriate, as well as for confirming or adjusting emissions inventories.
