Abstract
Since the transportation sector is highly responsible for U.S. fuel consumption and emissions, assessing the environmental impacts of transportation activities is essential for air-quality improvement programs. Also, high emitting vehicles need to be considered in the modeling of mobile-source emissions, because they contribute to a large portion of the total emissions, although they comprise a small portion of the vehicle fleet. In the context of this research, the thesis quantifies the environmental impacts of roadway grades and proposes a procedure that can enhance the screening of high emitting vehicles. First, the study quantifies the environmental impacts ...
