Sparse matrix operator kernel emissions (SMOKE)

The Sparse Matrix Operator Kernel Emissions (SMOKE) Modeling System was originally integrates emissions data processing with high-performance computing sparse-matrix algorithms. SMOKE is under active development at the Institute for the Environment and is partially supported by the Community Modeling and Analysis System (CMAS).

SMOKE is primarily an emissions processing system designed to create gridded, speciated, hourly emissions for input into a variety of air quality models such as CMAQ, REMSAD, CAMX and UAM. SMOKE supports area, biogenic, mobile (both on-road and non-road), and point source emissions processing for criteria, particulate, and toxic pollutants. For biogenic emissions modeling, SMOKE uses the Biogenic Emission Inventory System, version 2.5 (BEIS2) and version 3.09 and 3.14 (BEIS3). SMOKE is also integrated with the on-road emissions model MOBILE6 and MOVES.
