The authors wish to recognize the insightfulness, and diligence of Mr. Roger Brode and Mr. James Paumier, of Pacific Environmental Services Inc., in transforming our ideas into the reality that is AERMOD. This project was made possible through the continued support of Mr. Joe Tikvart, of EPA’s Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards (OAQPS), and Mr. Frank Schiermeier, of NOAA’s Atmospheric Sciences Modeling Division. The authors are particularly grateful to Dr. Gary Briggs, and Mr. John Irwin, of NOAA’s Atmospheric Sciences Modeling Division, for their thorough and constructive review of an earlier version of this document. Finally, we would like to thank the many scientists who participated in peer reviews and beta testing.
