Research & Analysis

A variety of research has been conducted by FHWA, EPA, HEI and others related to all aspects of MSAT. Links to FHWA sponsored ongoing studies and analysis of MSAT in the near road environment are provided below.

Case Studies

Quantitative Mobile Source Air Toxics (MSAT) analysis performed to fulfill National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) requirements are done using U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's emissions model MOVES, and in California EMFAC. Five case studies were developed to highlight how project sponsors approached various aspects of modeling MSAT emissions estimates at the project level, including the affect network, and MOVES inputs.
