Description:AMS (American Meteorological Society) / EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) Regulatory MODel
Abstract:AERMOD is a model for the assessment of local dispersion of atmospheric pollutants (less than 50 km from emission sources). It replaced ISC3 as the USEPA´s ”preferred general-purpose” model since November 9th, 2006. In Cuba it is expected to include this model in regulatory dispersion assessment and it has been already applied in the assessment of local atmospheric pollution due to power plants, generation sets and industrial sources. It also has been used in other countries in Latin America like Mexico and Argentina.
