Abstract:

The gaseous and particulate emissions of the Coast Guard cutter fleet are estimated by using measured emission factors and derived operational duty cycles. These data are compared to previous estimates by using emission factors found in the literature and the EPA estimates of total national vessel emissions and the total national emissions from all transportation sources. The U.S. Coast Guard fleet emissions for all categories of pollutants are less than 1 of the national transportation totals. Author
