The revision of the Guideline on AQ Models (Appendix W) will prompt many changes in the way dispersion modeling is conducted for regulatory purposes. Some of the changes to the Guideline include enhancements and bug fixes to the AERMOD modeling system, new screening techniques to address ozone and secondary PM2.5, delisting CALPUFF as the preferred long-range transport model, and updates on the use of meteorological input data. These changes will have a significant impact on the regulated community. In anticipation of these updates, the Air & Waste Management Association will hold its 6th Specialty Conference: “Guideline on Air Quality Models: The New Path” to provide a technical forum to discuss the Guideline. This talk covered the main highlights from this conference including the presentations from EPA on the status and future direction of the Guideline. Learn how these changes may impact dispersion modeling evaluations for short and long range transport.
