Intuitive Meteorological Data Preprocessor for AERMOD

BREEZE AERMET 7 simplifies the process of creating AERMOD-ready meteorological data files from raw data formats. Combining full U.S. EPA regulatory compliance with an all-new user interface, BREEZE AERMET 7 is both more powerful and easier to use than ever.


Key Features

  • Incorporates the latest U.S. EPA AERMET executable 18081, released on April 24, 2018
  • Adds an option for 64-bit operating system users to select 64-bit or 32-bit AERMET
  • Includes the latest U.S. EPA executables: AERMET 18081 and AERMINUTE 15272
  • Integrates raw 1-minute wind data automatically with the new AERMINUTE utility
  • Improves the network dongle efficiency
  • Follows modern Microsoft user-interface design standards that make AERMET processing intuitive
  • Hover over any check box, button, or blank for tooltips with helpful basic guidance and hints to help avoid common errors
  • Converts U.K. ADMS model data into AERMOD-ready format
  • Processes a wide range of surface and upper air data types: ISHD (TD-3505), CD144, HUSWO, SAMSON, SCRAM, TD3280, ADMS, TD-6405 (1-minute ASOS), FSL, TD-6201

Product Tour

Surface Data (including 1-minute data)

The Surface tab in AERMET 7 allows surface data, typically from government weather stations, to be read in to AERMET. This includes 1-minute (AERMINUTE) wind data, which can easily be imported. When you specify a surface data file, AERMET will find the station in its internal database and fill in fields such as latitude and longitude automatically. Learn more

 

Upper Air Data

The Upper Air tab allows the user to quickly import data from an upper atmosphere sounding station, which is typically required in order to produce AERMOD-ready met data. Like the Surface tab, when you select your upper air data file in the Upper Air tab, AERMET will save you time by automatically filling out fields such as latitude and longitude. Learn more

 

Onsite Station Data

In addition to typical surface and upper air data, usually from government-operated weather stations, AERMET can import a wide range of meteorological data collected at on-site stations. These range from data from meteorological towers that measure wind and temperature at multiple heights to SODAR and wind profiler data. AERMET includes support for the Fortran FREE format, meaning data exported from spreadsheet software like Microsoft Excel can easily be read in.      Learn more

 

Land Use Data

The Land Use tab provides a simple and flexible way for AERMET to get the important information it needs on the characteristics of the land surface that surrounds their meteorological station. Learn more

 

Quality Assurance Tools

In addition to setting up and running AERMET, producing a trustworthy meteorological dataset for AERMOD requires thorough Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC), including finding the root causes of error/warning messages, evaluating the accuracy of unusual data values, and ensuring that the final .SFC and .PFL files that will be used in AERMOD contain reasonable values. AERMET 7 provides a number of tools to make this easier. Learn more

 

Single-File Project Storage

AERMET processing can involve dozens of files: surface, on-site, 1-minute, upper air, and land use input files as well as a host of output and report files. AERMET 7 simplifies things by storing all of this data in one .ATZ zip file, making it easy to collaborate with co-workers or submit a file to a regulatory agency. Want to send someone just one particular file from your project? You can save individual files to a separate text file in AERMET 7, or you can unzip the entire .ATZ... Learn more
