1 Office of Air Quality Planning & Standards, Research Triangle Park, NC 27711 2 National Exposure Research Laboratory, Office of Research & Development, Research Triangle Park, NC 27711 3 ManTech Environmental Technology, Inc., Research Triangle Park, NC 27709 ii ACKNOWLEDGMENTS CMB8 was originally developed as part of Contracts 5D1607NAEX and 5D2724NAEX between EPA’s National Exposure Research Laboratory (NERL) and the Desert Research Institute (DRI) of the University and Community College System of Nevada. The manual was originally drafted as part of Contract 5D1808NAEX with EPA’s Office of Air Quality Planning & Standards (OAQPS). The Project Officers were C. Thomas Coulter 1 and Charles W. Lewis 2 . Substantial contributions to initial development of the CMB8 model were made by DRI staff members John G. Watson, Norman F. Robinson, Judith C. Chow, Eric M. Fujita, and Douglas H. Lowenthal. Teri L. Conner 2 and Robert D. Willis 3 also made important contributions to CMB8's initial development. Tom Coulter and Donna Kenski (then at EPA Region 5) spent considerable time troubleshooting CMB8 in May 1999. An effort was initiated by EPA in 1999 to repair and redesign CMB8. In September 1999, Pacific Environmental Services (PES) began work to repair and enhance CMB8 under contract 9D-1844-NTSA, an effort that led to the redesigned CMB8.2. CMB8.2 was developed principally by Vickie Kriegsman and Robert Wagoner PES (now MACTEC), Research Triangle Park, NC. Additional issues and operational problems were discovered and documented in early 2000. Subsequently, Ideal Software, Inc. (Apex, NC) was retained under contracts 2D-6228-NTSA (July 2002) and 4D-6389-NTSA (July 2004). Ideal Software engineers successfully compiled the model’s C++/Fortran-based DLL (the first since DRI to do so), and resolved many behavioral problems with the model, now called EPA-CMB8.2. Ideal’s John Scalco created many of the runtime features EPA-CMB8.2 now exhibits through its (Delphi) enhanced User Interface. Tom Coulter reorganized and refactored C++ and Fortran code for the DLL, reworked error handling, and removed obsolete variables and subroutines. With careful assistance from Ed Anderson of Science Applications International Corp., Tom updated the LINPACK library to LAPACK v3.0 and modified the Fortran code to accommodate it. Tom also served as Contracting Officer Representative for these contracts, assisted with the Delphi

iii reprogramming, and rewrote the manual. Tom’s diligent work resulted in a level of documentation and disclosure unknown in the history of the CMB model.
