      Emission scaling exceptions: public holidays

      Emissions vary in time.

      To reflect that, AirWare supports three mechanisms:

      1. use of temporal scaling factors.
      2. explicit editing of emission time series (e.g., for PBM, PUFF);
      3. use of time-series data of emissions (only for boilers/major stacks associated with industrial plants);

      The emisison patterns are defined for months, day of the week, and hour of the day.

      Public Holidays

      An obvious exception to these categories are public holidays

      list of public holidays is maintained as a separate Object Class. The list (read only) is linked from the temporal emission pattern editor page, and can be extended/edited from the Object Data Base level.

      A holiday is defined by:

      1. the DATE (YYYY-MM-DD, can be selected with in interactive date editor (calender widget);
      2. a name (short text string, the Object Name, see also: Object data structure
      3. an optional explanatory text field;
      4. the emission reduction factor to be applied for that day. The default value corresponds to Sunday (or equivalent).
