      Final Feasibility Analysis of the Implementation of the WRAP's Dust Definition (01/07) PDF or DOC
      The goal of this project was to evaluate the feasibility of applying the WRAP's draft dust definition, particularly for delineating anthropogenic from natural sources of dust. The report describes criteria and related data and methods that could be used in this delineation. It also provides conclusions as to the general level of feasibility for implementing the draft dust definition for regional haze purposed based on readily available data and methods for each source type.
