Abstract

SPECIATE is the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) repository of total organic compound (TOC) and particulate matter (PM) speciation profiles for emissions from air pollution sources. The profiles are key inputs to air quality modeling and source-receptor modeling applications. This paper addresses Version 4.0 of the SPECIATE Database.
