Model Information

Other models


The AERMOD model is a steady-state dispersion model based on planetary boundary layer turbulence structure and scaling concepts. It is applied to pollutant sources for short distances (around 50 km). The model simulates the transport and atmospheric dispersion of pollutants emited from point, volume or area sources. It considers surface or elevated sources. It uses a meteorological (AERMET) and terrain (AERMAP) preprocessors.
