AERMOD View is a complete and powerful air dispersion modeling package which seamlessly incorporates the following popular U.S. EPA air dispersion models into one integrated interface: AERMOD, ISCST3, ISC-PRIME.

Image

These US EPA air dispersion models are used extensively to assess pollution concentration and deposition from a wide variety of sources.

The AMS/EPA Regulatory Model (AERMOD) is the next generation air dispersion model based on planetary boundary layer theory. AERMOD utilizes a similar input and output structure to ISCST3 and shares many of the same features, as well as offering additional features. AERMOD fully incorporates the PRIME building downwash algorithms, advanced depositional parameters, local terrain effects, and advanced meteorological turbulence calculations.

We have an extensive list of standard features included with AERMOD View, a list that no other software package comes close to having or only as add-ons that cost you more.

For example, AERMOD Parallel, for an unlimited number of processors, is included in the package at no extra cost!

Essential client options such as complete AERMET and PCRAMMET meteorological data preprocessing and multiple pollutant utilities for modeling multiple pollutants in a single AERMOD, ISCST3 or ISC-PRIME run come standard. Many more features are also always included at no additional cost.

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.

Image

Powerful 3D Visualization

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.

Image

Export to Google Earth™

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. learn more

Image

New Project Wizard

The New Project Wizard allows you to quickly and easily set up a new project in AERMOD View. You can setup your project by specifying a reference point in Latitude/Longitude, UTM, or any other local coordinate system.

Image

AERMOD Parallel at No Extra Cost

Included in the package, at no extra cost, is AERMOD MPI, Lakes Environmental parallel version of AERMOD. This will significantly cut down on model run times, while still giving the high quality results you expect from AERMOD View.

Image

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.

Image

Multi-Chemical Utility

This utility will boost your productivity drastically by allowing you to specify emissions from several pollutants emitted by the same source. No need to setup different projects for each pollutant!

Image

Terrain Processor with Automatic Downloads

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. SRTM3 Terrain data at 90 m resolution available worldwide.

Image

Complete Meteorological Pre-Processors

Several tools are available for easy processing of meteorological data for AERMOD and ISC models. The AERSURFACE utility allows you to automatically calculate the required surface characteristics.

U.S. EPA NO2 NAAQS Tool

The U.S. EPA hourly National Ambient Air Quality Standard for NO2 is not calculated directly by the AERMOD model, however, AERMOD View includes an easy-to-use tool which will quickly calculate these values.
