Move over, please.

What air pollution model can be of help to me in the study of socio-economic impact of air pollution on the immediate environment of a pig farm? Thanks for everything.

Barry's Response - Dinakachukw:

An interesting question. Socio-Economic impact? I don't know if there are any off-the-shelf models to deal with something as specialized as that. For the air quality impact, explore the SCRAM website belonging the US government Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), download one of the ISC-PRIME air models and learn how to use it.

For air quality impacts of a large source such as a pig farm, I would be inclined to use an area source. The challenging part might be obtaining the meteorological data you need.

Liked the picture of the pigs. Would not ever use the air model myself, But im glad someone is testing the air pollution.

This is a really...undetailed question and explanation. If it was elaborated upon, I might be interested in reading it. I'm not really sure what the point of this is. I'm not really sure reading this was worthwhile to my dependency on living a fantastic life.

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.
