27 - 28 MAY 2019
AIR DISPERSION MODELLING
Using US-EPA preferred air quality model: AERMOD
This intensive 2-day course, from 27 to 28 May, with practical hands-on exercises, is designed for entry-level engineers, dispersion modelers, and meteorologists or anyone wanting to deepen their understanding of air dispersion modeling principles.
Students will learn how models incorporate the effects of – transport and dispersion, atmospheric turbulence, source characterization, building downwash, and terrain effects – with emphasis on U.S. EPA model – AERMOD and a brief introduction to CALPUFF.
Air dispersion modeling objectives
The AERMOD modeling system
Emission source types and characterization
Defining the project domain and receptors
Meteorological data preparation (AERMET)
Terrain characterization (AERMAP processing)
Building downwash (PRIME)
Modeling in the urban environment
Output processing and 2D/3D visualization
Used by over 4,000 professionals in 90 countries worldwide
AERMOD is the state-of-the-science, steady-state Gaussian air dispersion model that is
US-EPA approved for most refined modeling scenarios. BREEZE AERMOD is an enhanced version of the US-EPA approved AERMOD and offers the most complete air quality modeling system available in the market today.
*Participants will also be provided with one month license (trial)
