This course given by the expert in odour modelling Jennifer Barclay took place on 25 November 2019 in Santiago, Chile and it consisted of an overview of regulatory models, highlighting their strengths and weaknesses.
Dispersion modelling is a key management tool for quantifying and assessing odour impact. Models can predict quantitative air quality impacts over a wide geographical area, they can evaluate proposed future sources, and they are of help to optimize source layout and site selection for new facilities. Models could be also used to design buffer zones and fence line locations.
The course was attended by 7 people and was held in the offices of TSG Environmental.
Jenny Barclay, Director and Principal Scientist of the company Atmospheric Science Global, has more than 26 years’ experience in advanced meteorological studies and atmospheric dispersion modelling on all types of steady-state, non-steady state, particle, Eulerian and prognostic models.
Jenny was considered the ‘Odour Expert’ of the Atmospheric Studies Group (Developers of the CALPUFF model), where she was a key member for more than 15 years.
