Background: After receiving a request from EPA's Office of Atmospheric Programs to provide advice on the Second Generation Model, the SAB Staff Office formed an SAB Panel to respond to the Agency's request. A “widecast” soliciting expertise for the SGM Advisory Panel was provided in a Federal Register notice published on July 9, 2004 (69 FR 41474-41475). Another Federal Register notice published on November 18, 2004 (69 FR 67579-67580) provided notice of a December 2, 2004 teleconference of the SGM Advisory Panel. Posted on the SAB Web site (​sab/​) are a final roster of the Panel and charge questions from the Office of Atmospheric Programs. Additional background material on the Second Generation Model may be found at:​air/​sgm-sab.html. On February 4, 2005, panelists will hear from the model developers, discuss background materials and plan for the writing of the SAB Panel's advice. A meeting agenda will be posted on the SAB Web site prior to February 4, 2005.
