I'm trying to plan an air pollution study. How can I start the air pollution modelling at first stage? I want to start my M.Sc. thesis.

Barry's Response - Mohammad:

Go to the USA site for air quality models https://www.epa.gov/scram and browse through the tremendous free stuff they have there. I'm sure you will find plenty with the substance (no pun intended) needed for your thesis.

The one I have used regularly is called ISC-PRIME, and can be found under alternative models, https://www.epa.gov/scram/air-quality-dispersion-modeling-alternative-models - It comes complete with user manual and documents explaining the physical sciences behind the model. Screen3 is another I have used, but it is probably too simplistic for your needs. AERMOD and CALPUFF may be appropriate as well. They're both more advanced.

Good luck with this air pollution study and happy hunting.

When i clicked i was hoping for something like this,there are so many people that think this way,most of us don't care. It's very interesting idea and should be realized. We should take care of the air whit we live in, and these studies are a great project. I think petition should be added on this site, so the studies are pass tho schools all over the world.

Good Luck!

Your study would be more interesting if you have a specific topic in mind so that it will be easier for you to look for resources, references you need. There are lot's of sites you can visit by just typing the specific you want.
Good luck to your grad studies!

Interesting idea but can you back this up with accurate modeling for upper atmospheric processes? I'd like to see more modeling.

Do you have concerns about air pollution in your area??

Perhaps modelling air pollution will provide the answers to your question.

That is what I do on a full-time basis.  Find out if it is necessary for your project.
