This course is designed to provide learners with the air modelling underlying science of atmospherics physics as well as with the hands-on skills to successfully run selected regulatory air dispersion models. Lecture material covers principles of atmospheric physics with emphasis on the Planetary Boundary Layer. The course will cover model input parameters such as: source(s) emissions and characteristics, meteorological parameters and terrain classes. In addition, Canadian modelling regulatory requirements and applicable air dispersion models will be discussed. Computer laboratory sessions involve case studies using screening tools such as SCREEN, and sophisticated model software such as AERMOD and CALPUFF.
