What's New in Version 7.10

  • Incorporated the latest U.S. EPA AERMOD executable 15181 released on July 24, 2015, including the following:

    - A new LowWind3 non-DFAULT/BETA option

    - A new PVMRM2 beta option for NO2 processing

    - A new PVMRM2 debug option to allow users to examine the calculations when using PVMRM2 beta option for NO2

    - Options for Daily Maximum and Daily Maximum By Year for 24-hour PM2.5 processing

    New Options 710 - BREEZE AERMOD

    - A new Buoyant Line Source Type

    Buoyant Line Source Type - BREEZE AERMOD

  • Enabled high-speed parallel and BREEZE versions of the latest AERMOD executable 15181

  • Added a feature to allow applying an in-stack NO2/NOx ratio to multiple sources all at once for all source types

  • Added a new tool to facilitate users to calculate buoyancy parameters for buoyant line sources

    Add Buoyancy Tool - BREEZE AERMOD

  • Added a new option to allow users to choose default tab when creating a new project or opening an existing project

  • Replaced the character space with underscore in the name field of certain output files

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a bug that prevented sensitive receptor file from being generated for certain runs using BREEZE-enhanced FORTRAN executables

  • Fixed a bug that caused inconsistent display of vertical level heights for Cartesian gridded receptors in the 3D window

  • Fixed a bug that removed model object files after a run was completed

  • Fixed a bug that prevented terrain surface or shaded relief files to be generated for certain AERMAP runs

  • Fixed a bug that caused crash when using Automated License Management to unlock the software

Known Issues

  • When the multi-year option is enabled in the Control Options, subsequent years must be run immediately after prior years in order to properly read the output files.

  • Some USB Hardware Keys (dongles) for multi-core licenses of AERMOD that were issued for use with the 11103 and earlier executables will not be compatible with the most recent editions of the AERMOD Parallel and BREEZE AERMOD Parallel executables. These keys may need to be updated; please contact Support with related questions.

  • When using the click/drag tool to add rectangular objects in the Map Tab, in some cases the orientation of the object will "flip" requiring the user to manually move it to the originally intended position. It is recommended that users begin drawing all rectangular objects in the bottom left corner of the object to avoid this orientation flip.

  • Event runs must be executed immediately after the corresponding standard AERMOD run.
