Air Quality Dispersion Models
Gaussian Air Quality Model
Do you know where I can find air quality dispersion models? Hi....im an environmental engineering student,looking for some data about air pollution modeling & simulation.
- Go to the USA government website http://www.epa.gov/scram001/dispersion_alt.htm scroll down to ISC PRIME - the model I used for many years, and download the code and the manual. Get to know how to use it. This is good for a variety of source types.
Most of my modelling these days is done with AERMOD
- a more current one, and CALPUFF when its use is justified. Both of these models are available from the same EPA website. Visit this page instead - http://www.epa.gov/ttn/scram/dispersion_prefrec.htm
Introductory air quality modelling
For simple flare or other single-source input, download the screen3 model and http://www.epa.gov/scram001/dispersion_screening.htm
This may be the one for your project here. Have fun with it.
There is plenty of detail in the manuals for these models. Not always the easiest read, though, but worth it. Hope these help...
