Alberta Environment and Parks recommends using the following models to predict ground level concentration of pollutants.
For specific details on dispersion modelling, see the Air Quality Model Guideline at:
All recommended models are approved by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA):
|Screening||AERSCREEN - Uses worst-case meteorological data|
|Refined Assessment||AERMOD-PRIME -This is a multi-source steady-state plume model.|
|CALPUFF - This is a multi-layer, multi-species, non-steady-state puff dispersion model that can simulate the effects of time- and space-varying meteorological conditions.|
