These simulations are being performed at CSU for a year long study using the CSU Regional Atmospheric Modeling System (RAMS) cou- pled with a Lagrangian particle dispersion model. INTRODUCTION The Measurement Of Haze And Visual Effect (MOHAVE) program is a year long field study being conducted in the desert southwest United States to assess the impact of the Mohave Power Project (MPP) and other potential sources of air pollution to specific Class I areas located in the region. The measurement phase of this stud
