Emission Models: Overview
Current Emissions Models/Tools maintained by the FAA or provided by EPA
Single & Multi Airport Focus
Emission Dispersion Modeling System (EDMS)
generates emissions inventories (emissions screening)
integrates with higher fidelity EPA models for dispersion modeling
AERMOD Modeling System - 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.
