- Sulfate levels in large portions of the eastern U.S. (and elsewhere) have the potential of being strongly affected by emission control regulations as well as by siting and fuel use decisions which will take effect within the next several decades. If ambient standards for sulfate or a surrogate such as fine particulates are promulgated, the relationship of relevant distance scales of atmospheric transport of sulfate to the dimensions of states and air quality control regions must be taken into account. It is the purpose of this paper to document a range of air quality projections which are a consequence of the Department of Energy fuel utilization and emission control scenarios for the year 1990. Levels of sulfur dioxide and sulfate in the contiguous U.S. have been calculated with the BNL AIRSOX long-range transport model using emission inventories consisting of either major fuel-burning sources or major coal-burning sources. The extended spatial scale over which impacts of sulfur oxide emissions are significant is illustrated via an emitter-receptor matrix. This matrix presents the contribution of exposure to SO/sub 4/ in each of 10 receptor EPA Federal regions due to SO/sub 2/ emissions from each Federal region.
