The AERMOD model has obtained a prominent position in the US regulatory framework and is bound to attract a wide user community.
AERMOD is a steady-state plume model that incorporates air dispersion based on planetary boundary layer turbulence structure and scaling concepts, including treatment of both surface and elevated sources, and both simple and complex terrain
In the autumn of 2005, AERMOD became established as the preferred air dispersion model in the US EPA's "Guideline on Air Quality Models". From December 9, 2005 onwards, AERMOD should be the appropriate application used as a replacement for the ISC3 model.
