Air Quality Modeling Program
Air quality modeling uses computer programs, or models, to simulate the flow of air pollution in the atmosphere and to predict the associated health and environmental impacts. By utilizing mathematical equations that replicate weather patterns and characteristics of the physical atmosphere, models are able to simulate the release and transport of air pollutants from their sources. Air quality models can also incorporate chemical reactions that occur in the atmosphere, as well as account for the effects of precipitation and the gravitational settling of airborne particles. Using these methodologies, air quality models then produce an estimation of pollution concentrations or depositions at specific locations of concern. more …
