Jason Watson has nearly nine years experience in the field of environmental science, specialising in air quality modelling/monitoring, occupational health investigations and contaminated site assessments. He is an active member of the Clean Air Society of Australia and New Zealand (CASANZ) and the Environment Institute of Australia.
Jason has experience in atmospheric dispersion modelling using TAPM, Ausplume v6.0 and Caline4.
Jason recently finished his Masters in Environmental Science at Macquarie University. He completed a research project in conjunction with the NSW DEC, modelling the concentration of air toxics within the Greater Metropolitan Region of NSW (Wollongong, Sydney and Newcastle). Using TAPM as the predictive modelling tool, the research is anticipated to identify air toxic “hot spots” to guide future air toxics policy.
