The AERSCREEN model estimates worst-case impacts of ground-level concentrations for a single source by interfacing with the screening mode built into the AERMOD executable. AERSCREEN produces several different output files which can be assessed and analyzed using the advanced output viewer of Lakes Software’s AERSCREEN View application.
As we have discussed in this space before, presenting high-quality graphical depictions of air dispersion modeling output is vital to communicating the meaning of the calculations. The Graphical Options within Lakes Software’s wide range of commercial products give users the customization options that modelers need. These options are accessed via buttons on either the main toolbar or Annotation Toolbar.
The AERMOD air dispersion model features many different settings which provide users the ability to customize how model output is presented. Within the model’s Source Pathway are multiple options for grouping sources, but just what do all these different groups mean? Below is a look at each type.
