EPA PROJECT SUMMARIES
The following are detailed synopses of key findings of projects supported by
the U.S. EPA, available at no charge from its Center for Environmental Research
Information (CERI), 26 W. Martin Luther King Dr., Cincinnati OH 45268
(513-569-7562). Full reports (same title and EPA number without the "S")
can be ordered from NTIS using the PB numbers and prices given.
Approach for Estimating Global Landfill Methane Emissions
(EPA/600/S7-91/002), R.L. Peer et al. (Radian Corp., Research Triangle Pk. NC
27709), 2 pp., Apr. 1991. NTIS: PB91-149534; $17. An overview of
available country-specific data and modeling approaches for estimating
An Overview of Climate Information Needs for Ecological Effects Models
(EPA/600/S3-90/089), R.L. Peer (address above), 1 p., Feb. 1991. NTIS:
PB91-125898; $17. Through literature review and personal contact, determined
needs for several types of models: biome, ecosystem (process), tree and
Evaluation of Significant Anthropogenic Sources of Radiatively
Important Trace Gases (EPA/600/S8-90/079), S.D. Piccot et al. (Alliance
Technol. Corp., Chapel Hill NC 27514), 6 pp., Jan. 1991. NTIS:
PB91-127753; $23. Assembles and refines country- and source-specific data, on
sources such as various forms of fossil fuel combustion, rice paddies and other
agricultural activities, and CFCs.
National and State-Level Emissions Estimates of Radiatively Important
Trace Gases (RITGs) from Anthropogenic Sources (EPA/600/S8-90/073), S.D.
Piccot (address above), M. Saeger, 3 pp., Jan. 1991. NTIS: PB91-103572;
$17. Estimates for CO2, CH4, CFCs and O3 precursors were prepared in support of
the National Governors' Association Task Force on Global Climate Change. Natural
sources were excluded.
Literature Review of Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Biogenic Sources
(EPA/600/S8-90/071), D. Campbell et al. (Radian Corp., Research Triangle Pk. NC
27709), 2 pp., Jan. 1991. NTIS: PB90-274085; $17. Data from about 170
sources published over the last 10 years are the basis for estimates for CO2,
CH4, CO, N2O and NOx. Includes emission factors, budget estimates, and reservoir
estimates of the potential amount of greenhouse gas stored in specific
ecosystems or types of biota.
Emissions and Cost Estimates for Globally Significant Anthropogenic
Combustion Sources of NOx, CH4, CO and CO2 (EPA/600/S7-90/010), S.D. Piccot
et al. (addr. immed. above), 8 pp., Aug. 1990. NTIS: PB90-216433; $23.
Emission factors and data needed for estimating control costs were developed for
about 80 globally significant combustion sources in seven source
categories--utility, industrial, fuel production, transportation, residential,
commercial and kilns/ovens/dryers.
Strategies for the Development of Climate Scenarios for Impact
Assessment: Phase 1 Final Report (EPA/600/S3-90/026), P.J. Robinson (Univ.
N. Carolina, Chapel Hill NC 27599), P.L. Finkelstein, 5 pp., Aug. 1990. NTIS:
PB90-192022; $17. Available techniques were assessed through literature reviews
and consultations with scenario development experts. Major needs of potential
users were determined, such as statistics on climatic events exceeding certain
thresholds, and general information about storminess.
