Air Quality Research and Contract Projects
The TCEQ develops technical support and research contracts and work orders with vendors and Texas institutes of higher education. These contractors are currently involved with several projects that will advance the science of air quality modeling and research.
Air Quality Research and Contract Reports
Reports the TCEQ received from researchers and contractors are grouped in the following categories:
- Emissions Inventory: on-road mobile
- Emissions Inventory: biogenic, non/off-road mobile, area, & point sources
- Meteorological Modeling
- Photochemical Modeling
- Data Analysis
- Miscellaneous Projects
Air Quality Research Quality Assurance
Research projects must include a formal Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC) program that will ensure products are of known and acceptable quality. TCEQ has established QA/QC requirements that have been developed to be consistent with the applicable elements of ANSI/ASQ E4-2004: Quality Systems for Environmental Data and Technology Programs: Requirements with Guidance for Use and the TCEQ Quality Management Plan.
Texas Environmental Research Consortium
The Texas Environmental Research Consortium (TERC) has additional contract reports that have helped advance the leading edge of the science for air quality regulation and implementation.
