Introduction to Air Pollution Meteorology & Dispersion Modeling

Introduction to Air Pollution Meteorology & Dispersion Modeling
Tuesday, July 13, 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm ET

A fundamental understanding of air pollution meteorology and dispersion modeling is essential for a more complete perspective of the air quality profession. Participants will learn the basic weather conditions that impact the concentration of atmospheric pollutants and how these conditions along with sources and receptors are incorporated into dispersion models such as AERMOD and AERSCREEN. This webinar is recommended for air quality managers, administrators, technicians, and science/engineering staff in government, industry, and consulting who require a solid foundation in the basic principles and practices of air pollution meteorology and dispersion modeling.
