AERMOD View - Version 11.0 - Gaussian Plume Air Dispersion Modeling Software Package
AERMOD View is a complete and powerful air dispersion modeling package which seamlessly incorporates the U.S. EPA’s preferred regulatory air dispersion model into a powerful, easy-to-use interface.
The AMS/EPA Regulatory Model (AERMOD) is the state-of-the-science, steady-state Gaussian air dispersion model based on planetary boundary layer theory. AERMOD fully incorporates the PRIME building downwash algorithms, advanced depositional parameters, local terrain and urban heat island effects, and advanced meteorological turbulence calculations.
AERMOD is used extensively to assess pollution concentration and deposition from a wide variety of sources in locations all over the world.
- AERMOD Parallel for up to 8 processors,
- Complete AERMET and PCRAMMET meteorological data preprocessing utilities, and
- Multiple pollutant utilities for modeling multiple pollutants in a single project
AERMOD View contains features developed by meteorologists and engineers who regularly work with air dispersion models, so they understand what today's modeler needs to do their job successfully.
Integrated Graphical User Interface
Fully integrated interface combining easy to use graphical tools (e.g., sources, buildings, and receptors), seamless model run, and automated contouring and posting of results.
Fully integrated GIS-based interface combining easy-to-use graphical tools for drawing sources, buildings, and receptors; seamless model run execution; and automated contouring and posting of results.
Complete 3D visualization of your entire modeling area. Sources, buildings, and concentration and/or deposition contour results are displayed in context with the surrounding terrain.
This exciting feature allows you to export your buildings, sources, receptors and contours into Google Earth giving you a more realistic image of where your pollutants will impact surrounding areas.
Advanced terrain processing capabilities are offered for several terrain data file formats such as NED, SRTM, and USGS DEM. Automated download of terrain data files from WebGIS. SRTM1 Terrain data at 30 m resolution available worldwide. WATCH VIDEO
There's more to AERMOD View than great looks. Each copy contains everything you'll need to complete your project without paying for costly add-ons.
New Project Wizard
Quickly and easily set up a new project in AERMOD View by specifying a reference point in Latitude/Longitude, UTM, or any other local coordinate system.
Boost your productivity drastically by specifying emissions from several pollutants emitted by the same source. No need to setup different projects for each pollutant!
ISC Models Included
Lakes Environmental also seamlessly incorporates the Industrial Source Complex (ISC) air dispersion models 2013 ISCTST3 and ISC-PRIME into AERMOD View.
Aermod Parallel at No Additional Cost
AERMOD MPI, Lakes Environmental parallel version of AERMOD, will significantly cut down on model run times, while still giving the high quality results you expect from AERMOD View.
Several tools are available for easy processing of meteorological data for AERMOD & ISC models, including AERMET, AERSURFACE, AERMINUTE, & PCRAMMET
Professional Printing Templates
Take advantage of the ready-to-use printout template. You can include your company logo, project number, and other project specific information.
