Short summary
The implementation and application of the Integrated Source Apportionment Method (ISAM) for O3 and its precursors for the Community Multiscale Air Quality (CMAQ) model are described. CMAQ-ISAM is a hybrid of source apportionment and source sensitivity in that O3 production is attributed to precursor sources based on the O3 formation regime. CMAQ-ISAM offers a source attribution tool for the purposes of quantifying and understanding sources and impacts of regional air pollution.
