On October 28-30, modelers will head to Raleigh, North Carolina for A&WMA's Conference: Guideline on Air Quality Models: Next Generation of Models.
Guideline on Air Quality Models: Next Generation of Models will provide a technical forum for environmental professionals to discuss proposed revisions to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Guideline on Air Quality Models, the guideline that is required for use in the preparation of state implementation plans, federal construction permits, and state permits. Source owners, regulatory agencies, and consultants won't want to miss this international symposium to discuss the technical and regulatory issues associated with theese proposed changes.
EPA has adopted AERMOD and CALPUFF as the refined models for routine modeling applications. The user community is gaining experience with these models and further advances in modeling techniques and meteorological databases should be reported at this conference. In addition, there are advanced models used in international or specialized situations that need to be discussed. When and how can these models be moved into the Guideline?
Presentations will cover a variety of topics including:
