    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;SMOKE Digital Object Identifier (DOI): SMOKE-MOVES Integration Tool Development 1. &amp;lt;b&amp;gt;New MOVES RatePerStart (RPS) Mode&amp;lt;/b&amp;gt;&lt;/p&gt;

	&lt;li&gt;New feature in &amp;lt;b&amp;gt;Movesmrg&amp;lt;/b&amp;gt; for users to model Off-Network Start Exhaust and Crankcase Start Exhaust processes that are currently modeled under RatePerVehicle (RPV) mode.&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Unit of RPS emission rate is mass per vehicle-engine start (grams/vehicle-start).&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;New &amp;quot;&lt;strong&gt;STARTS&lt;/strong&gt;&amp;quot; activity inventory is required to compute RPS emissions with RPS emission rates.&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;&lt;strong&gt;RPS_MODE&lt;/strong&gt;[default: N] : Estimates off-network RPS emissions from engine starts.&lt;/li&gt;

&lt;p&gt;2. &amp;lt;b&amp;gt;New Off-Network Idling (ONI) Mode&amp;lt;/b&amp;gt;&lt;/p&gt;

	&lt;li&gt;New feature in &amp;lt;b&amp;gt;Movesmrg&amp;lt;/b&amp;gt; for users to model idling emissions from parking lot, distribution centers and other off-network spaces.&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Previously modeled under RatePerDistance (RPD) mode with roadtypes=1 (off-network) and speedbin=0 (speed=zero).\&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Unit of ONI emission rate is mass per vehicle-idling hour (grams/hour).&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;New &amp;quot;&lt;strong&gt;IDLING&lt;/strong&gt;&amp;quot; activity inventory is required to compute ONI emissions with ONI emission rates.&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;ONI_MODE [default: N] : Estimates off-network idling emissions from parking, and distribution centers.&lt;/li&gt;

&lt;p&gt;New Source Apportionment Regroup Tool&lt;/p&gt;

	&lt;li&gt;New Source Apportionment Regroup Tool will allow users to assign existing Source Apportionment (SA)-ready gridded hourly emissions and stack groups files from SMOKE to new SA group IDs.&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Requires the sector-specific SA-ready gridded hourly emissions and stack group files and new regroup mapping input file called &amp;lt;a href=&amp;quot;;quot;&amp;gt; REGROUP_GROUPS&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt;.&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Check out &amp;lt;a href=&amp;quot;;quot;&amp;gt; the Coordinating Research Council (CRC) A-119 Full Technical Report&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt; for the details.&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Download the complete use case package data file for the SA regroup tool from &amp;lt;a href=&amp;quot;;quot;&amp;gt; the CRC Data Share Site&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt;.&lt;/li&gt;

&lt;p&gt;BEIS v3.7 Enhancements&lt;/p&gt;

	&lt;li&gt;New BEIS Emission Factors (BEISFAC) and BELD5 landuse input files are required.&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Latest BEISFAC and North America region BELD5 (1km x 1km) input files for BEIS v3.7 can be found from &amp;lt;a href=&amp;quot;;quot;&amp;gt; the CMAS Data Warehouse&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt;.&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Custom BELD5 input file over your modeling domain can be developed using new updated &amp;lt;b&amp;gt;Aggwndw&amp;lt;/b&amp;gt; utility program in SMOKE that can optionally aggregate non-mass values with the setting of AGGREGATE_EMIS_YN = N.&lt;/li&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Laypoint Updates&lt;/p&gt;

	&lt;li&gt;Update to treat new WRF hybrid-vertical coordinate type (-999) as existing sigma (7) coordinate.&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Update to enforce fire bottom plume height starting from surface layer.&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;New &lt;strong&gt;FIRE_BOTTOM_LAYER_1_YN&lt;/strong&gt; [Default: Y]: Define the bottom of fire plume as model layer 1.&lt;/li&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Smkinven Updates&lt;/p&gt;

	&lt;li&gt;Prevent from dropping CEMS hourly NOX and SO2 emissions when all CEMS parameters (e.g., heat input, steam load and gross load) are missing.&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Update to proper handle multiple ORIS and Boiler IDs CEMS sources under the same point source Unit ID.&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;&lt;strong&gt;PROCESS_MULT_ORIS_UNITS_YN&lt;/strong&gt; [default: N]: Allows Smkinven to append &amp;quot;__##&amp;quot; to Unit ID to treat them as separate point sources.&lt;/li&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Smkmerge and Movesmrg Updates&lt;/p&gt;

	&lt;li&gt;SMK_SUB_SECTOR_OUTPUT_YN [default:N]: Generate sub-sector source group emissions output files based on the list of source group ID defined in (&amp;lt;a href=&amp;quot;;quot;&amp;gt;SOURCE_GROUPS&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt;).&lt;/li&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Spcmat and Smkreport Updates&lt;/p&gt;

	&lt;li&gt;USE_REF_COUNTY_MAP_YN [default:N]: New feature to assign speciation profiles by reference county based on the inventory-reference county cross-reference input file (&amp;lt;a href=&amp;quot;;quot;&amp;gt;MCXREF&amp;lt;/a&amp;gt;).&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Generate correct Smkreport reports for the inventory sources with multiple speciation profiles assigned by &lt;strong&gt;GSPRO_COMBO&lt;/strong&gt; and/or multiple &lt;strong&gt;GSREF&lt;/strong&gt; cross-referencing approaches.&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;New speciation profile description (&lt;strong&gt;GSPRODESC&lt;/strong&gt;) input file support in Smkreport. Users can optionally output the speciation profile descriptions to Smkreport &amp;quot;&lt;strong&gt;BY SPCCODE&lt;/strong&gt;&amp;quot; report.&amp;lt;/li&amp;gt;&lt;/li&gt;

&lt;p&gt;SMOKE4AERMOD Updates&lt;/p&gt;

	&lt;li&gt;Added new command &amp;quot;AERMOD ANNUAL&amp;quot; in Smkreport to generate emission helper files for AERMOD model for sectors other than onroad.&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Overall updates across all sectors (e.g., point, area, commercial marine vessel port &amp;amp; underway, and gridded sectors).&lt;/li&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Bug fixes&lt;/p&gt;

	&lt;li&gt;Various bug fixes since the public SMOKE version 476 release in September 2019&lt;/li&gt;
