2 Agency Regulatory Model (AERMOD) as the Agency’s preferred near-field dispersion model

3 for a wide range of regulatory applications in all types of terrain based on extensive

4 developmental and performance evaluation. For PSD/NSR modeling under the PM2.5 NAAQS,

5 AERMOD should be used to model primary PM2.5 emissions unless use of an alternative model

6 can be justified (Section 3.2, Appendix W), such as the Buoyant Line and Point Source

7 Dispersion Model (BLP).

9 The AERMOD modeling system includes the following components:

10 AERMOD: the dispersion model (U.S. EPA, 2004a; U.S. EPA, 2012a);

11 AERMAP: the terrain processor for AERMOD (U.S. EPA, 2004b, U.S. EPA, 2011a);

12 and

13 AERMET: the meteorological data processor for AERMOD (U.S. EPA, 2004c; U.S.

14 EPA, 2012b).

15

16 Other components that may be used, depending on the application, are:

17 BPIPPRIME: the building input processor (U.S. EPA, 2004d);

18 AERSURFACE: the surface characteristics processor for AERMET (U.S. EPA, 2008);

19 AERSCREEN: a screening version of AERMOD (U.S. EPA, 2011b; U.S. EPA, 2011c);

20 and

21 AERMINUTE: a pre-processor to calculate hourly average winds from ASOS 2-minute

22 observations (U.S. EPA, 2011d).
