Practical Air Dispersion Modeling Workshop - International

This 3-day course focuses on the fundamentals of air dispersion modeling and is designed for those who need to conduct air dispersion modeling assessments, sharpen their existing modeling skills, or better understand results prepared by others. It provides hands-on instruction in particular on the use of AERMOD, the U.S. EPA's preferred computer model recommended for estimation of ambient impacts of air pollutants emitted from industrial sources, and CALPUFF. This course reviews the scientific theory behind these dispersion models with an emphasis on formulating and conducting an air quality analysis from start to finish utilizing the refined model options. During the course, students will use BREEZE AERMOD and BREEZE CALPUFF to analyze case studies and gain practical experience in processing meteorological and geophysical data and source inputs to the models, running and analyzing model output, and post-processing results to visualize and document predicted impacts. Upon completion of the course, attendees will:

  • Understand the fundamentals of air dispersion modeling with AERMOD and CALPUFF
  • Understand the basics of the AERMOD model, input data, and model options
  • Understand the basics of the CALPUFF model, input data, and model options
  • Be able to carry out a typical modeling analysis
  • Produce and correctly interpret tables, plots, and other output from AERMOD and CALPUFF

Accidental Release Modeling Workshop – International

This 2-day course focuses on the fundamentals of accidental release modeling and provides hands-on instruction with BREEZE Incident Analyst. The course is designed for those who need to conduct accidental release modeling assessments, sharpen their existing modeling skills, or better understand results prepared by others. Attendees will gain an in-depth understanding of common source term calculation methods and impact analysis models in order to evaluate potential hazards (including toxics, fires, and explosions) due to accidental release of chemicals under various situations. The technical methods and models to be discussed and used during the course are recognized globally and used routinely to fulfill a variety of regulatory requirements (e.g., risk management planning, emergency response and management, and process safety management). Upon completion of the course, attendees will:

  • Understand and know how to utilize basic technical approaches for accidental release modeling analyses
  • Learn about common source term calculation methods
  • Grasp the use of BREEZE Incident Analyst to conduct accidental release modeling analyses
  • Gain practice using BREEZE Incident Analyst's post-processing, 3D Analyst, to analyze modeling results
  • Receive a 10% discount on your next BREEZE Software product purchase made within 90 days of attending the training course.
