BREEZE Software, Data and Services / Trinity Consultants

AERMOD Modeling Computer Lab - Seattle, WA


Trinity Consultants offers this 2 day course to provide hands-on instruction on the use of AERMOD, the U.S. EPA`s preferred computer model recommended for estimation of ambient impacts of air pollutants emitted from industrial sources. This course reviews the scientific theory behind these dispersion models with an emphasis on formulating and conducting an air quality analysis from start to finish utilizing the refined model options of AERMOD, its meteorological processor AERMET, and terrain processor AERMAP. During the course, students will use BREEZE modeling software to analyze case studies and gain practical experience in processing meteorological and geophysical data and source inputs to the models, running and analyzing model output, and post-processing results to visualize and document predicted impacts.
