In the summer of 2002, the WRAP Oversight Committees established a Dust Emissions Joint Forum to consolidate the WRAP's efforts involving dust. Previously, three forums had worked on dust issues: the Mobile Sources Forum, the Research and Development Forum, and the Emissions Forum.
The new DEJF will initially concentrate on improving how dust emissions are estimated and subsequently treated by air quality models. The Forum will then begin examining strategies to effectively reduce the impact of dust emissions on visibility in Class I areas.
