Now that CEQA requires VMT analysis to evaluate traffic impacts, and CEQA analysis in air quality and GHG emissions uses different modeling systems to calculate emissions associated with VMT. The traffic impact section will be using subregional traffic models to predict VMT, while the air quality and GHG analysis uses CalEEMod. With these different models, how do you keep the information within these three sections of a CEQA document consistent? Find out how at this session.
