Statistical Analysis of Emissions Data

Office of Air and Radiation, Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards, Sector Policies and Programs Division, Measurement Policy Group

The Measurement Policy Group is responsible for directing a national program that improves emissions quantification for air pollutants from a variety of emissions sources.

The fellow will utilize the Electronic Reporting Tool (ERT) and the online database (WebFIRE) by analyzing real-world emissions test data from Information Collection Request (ICR) databases for Industrial/Commercial Boilers, Commercial, Institutional Solid Waste Incinerators (CISWI), Sewage Sludge Incinerators, and Electric Generation Units. The analysis will assess the submitted information for use in developing high quality emissions factors. The fellow will also research the beta version of the next iteration of the ERT to automatically characterize the quality of the submitted source test reports and to guide third party reviewers in a more detailed quality assessment.

This project will provide the fellow with the opportunity to gain knowledge and experience with the federal process used for developing and revising emissions factors. The fellow will gain knowledge and experience with some of the public policy tools that are used for environmental protection and protection of public health with particular emphasis on multi-pollutant approaches to air quality management. The fellow will also learn how to evaluate environmental emissions test data and how to apply it in a policy setting.

Final Product:
The student will be required to prepare a report that summarizes the finding of his or her work related to the emissions factors program.
