Houston-Galveston-Brazoria 8-Hour Ozone SIP Modeling (2005/2006 Episodes)

Air quality modeling data files and documents for the 8-hour ozone SIP revision in the Houston-Galveston-Brazoria area (2005 and 2006 episodes).

The TCEQ is conducting meteorological and photochemical modeling to support development of the State Implementation Plan in the Houston-Galveston-Brazoria (HGB) ozone nonattainment area for the eight-hour ozone standard. This page provides the data files and documents for the HGB Ozone Modeling of 2005 and 2006 Episodes (HGB8H2).

Files provided here are all undergoing quality assurance and peer review and are subject to change. Visit this Web page frequently to check for updates. If you have any question regarding these files, please e-mail us at amda@tceq.texas.gov with "HGB8h2 Ozone SIP Modeling Files" in the subject line.

Meteorological Modeling Data Files

The TCEQ staff conducted MM5 meteorological modeling of 2005 and 2006 episodes for the HGB 8-hour ozone SIP. Due to the large size of MM5 modeling input and output files, we are unable to provide them via FTP/Web download. To obtain MM5 modeling files, please e-mail us at amda@tceq.texas.gov with "HGB8H2 Ozone SIP MM5 Modeling Files" in the subject line.

MM5 Modeling Domain - map projection, horizontal grid and vertical layer structures.
