This one-day course for environmental managers who review or manage dispersion modeling will cover modeling concepts and regulatory requirements for state and federal air permitting. Learn when and why modeling is required, different models to be used, possible complications, and how to identify errors.
This 3-day workshop demonstrates step-by-step procedures for completing an ambient air impact analysis based on a case study of an industrial facility that includes open pits (quarries), conveyor transfers and haul roads, storage piles, roof monitors, building vents, point sources, and flares. Parameter refinement methods are included.
This course introduces students to the key steps in conducting an LCA, emphasizing how to ensure relevant data for improving environmental performance are gathered and analyzed. Course attendees will develop a practical understanding of the LCA framework and applications of the LCA for organizational sustainability initiatives. Beyond providing a ...
This 2-day course is designed for environmental professionals with little dispersion modeling experience who wish to use the AERMOD model or to better understand AERMOD results provided by others. Course topics include source characterization, building and terrain data, and results interpretation. The course includes hands-on modeling exercises ...
In this flagship course, students receive a thorough introduction to air dispersion modeling theory and application. Topics of discussion include the regulatory requirements for modeling, modeling study design, and U.S. EPA modeling guidelines and protocol.
This course provides hands-on instruction using AERMOD, U.S. EPA’s preferred air quality dispersion models. It includes a brief theoretical review and emphasizes formulating and conducting an air quality analysis utilizing the refined model options.
This course focuses on source analysis and air quality impact assessments for industrial accidental releases. The course covers model assumptions, strengths, and shortcomings. Attendees will learn to select analysis strategies and reliably critique work.
