CPANS is pleased to announce the September Edmonton Luncheon Topic: Source Apportionment of Secondary Fine Particulate Matter in Central Alberta Using CMAQ
In 2016, Alberta Environment and Parks awarded the Parkland Airshed Management Zone with a grant to perform source apportionment modelling of secondary fine particulate matter in central Alberta; contractor Ramboll Environ was retained. Building on their previous secondary fine particulate matter modelling in the Alberta Capital Region, Ramboll Environ expanded the scope of the modelling to encompass central Alberta. Six source apportionment scenarios were identified based on common emission sources in central Alberta: on-road mobile sources, upstream oil and gas, coal-fired electrical generating units, other electrical generating units, other stationary point sources, and all anthropogenic sources. Results of the source apportionment scenarios will be presented along with information regarding model performance and recommendations for future work.
Presenter: Maxwell Mazur joined Alberta Environment and Parks in 2014. He is the is the Senior Air Quality Specialist for the Red Deer North Saskatchewan region. In his time with the department he has contributed to the understanding and management of fine particulate matter in the region through the Capital Region and Red Deer fine particulate matter responses. This work combines Maxwell’s experience in air quality research (e.g. M.Sc. University of Toronto, Publications with Environment Canada) and interaction with stakeholders to implement and achieve effective air quality management in Alberta.
