BREEZE AERSCREEN is a screening model based on the U.S.
EPA AERMOD air quality dispersion model and is compatible with the BREEZE AERMOD
modeling system. It will produce estimates of “worst-case” 1-hour concentrations
for a single source, without the need for hourly meteorological data. BREEZE
AERSCREEN also includes conversion factors to estimate “worst-case” 3-hour,
8-hour, 24-hour, and annual concentrations. These concentration estimates are
intended to be equal to or greater than the estimates produced by AERMOD with a
fully developed set of meteorological and terrain data, however the degree of
conservatism will vary depending on the application.
BREEZE AERSCREEN is simple and easy to use. There are only a few steps that need to be completed to setup, execute, and analyze model results. All of the model setup is done in a series of data entry tabs or in the model properties panel.
