AERMOD and AUSPLUME: Understanding the Similarities and Differences
In this presentation, the similarities and differences between AERMOD and AUSLPUME are discussed and analysed with the ultimate goal of easing the transition from AUSPLUME to AERMOD in Victoria, as well as Australia as a whole. Topics discussed include source types, treatment of terrain, plume rise algorithms, low wind speed conditions, and chemical transformations.
Technical Considerations of Adopting AERMOD into Australia and New Zealand
To ease the adoption of AERMOD into Australia and New Zealand, several technical aspects, that are important to the use of AERMOD, are discussed in this presentation. These technical aspects include mixing height calculation techniques, surface parameter sensitivities and considerations, urban option applicability, and selection of terrain.
