Ground-level ozone and particulate matter are two major air pollutants regulated by the US EPA. Currently there is significant regulatory and enforcement focus on reducing NOx emission in the eastern part of the United States. In this research, using an advanced air quality simulation model, we develop 19 state-by- 19-state source-receptor matrices. These S-R matrices include ozone and particulate matter sensitivity with respect to point source NOx, surface source NOx, and total SO2 emissions reductions. In this presentation, we will examine the effectiveness of point NOx vs. surface NOx control for ozone; the effectiveness of NOx vs. SO2 control for particulate matter; and the effect of local controls vs. controls on sources of long-range transport of pollution. We will then discuss the results of using a static welfare optimization model to examine alternative strategies for point source NOx reductions in the eastern U.S.
