AERMOD Modeling Computer Lab - Online

This 2-day course is an online version of the in-person AERMOD Lab that is provided each year in various locations around the US. Our instructor will provide hands-on instruction online using GoToWebinar 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. 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 of AERMOD, its meteorological processor AERMET, and terrain processor AERMAP. During the course, students will use BREEZE modeling software 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. Course completion will enable attendees to:

  • Understand the basics of the AERMOD model, input data, and model options
  • Carry out a typical AERMOD modeling analysis
  • Produce and correctly interpret tables, plots, and other output from AERMOD
  • Note: The course fee is per attendee. If multiple individuals will be attending within one office, they will all need to register (for which we do offer a multiple registration discount). Recording the training course is strictly prohibited.
