The BREEZE Remote Modeling System (BRMS) is a Web-enabled application that executes AERMOD model runs in a fraction of the time they take on a desktop computer, thereby assisting modelers in reducing model runtimes on large or highly time-sensitive AERMOD model runs. The BRMS operates on a massively parallel computer cluster that combines the processing power of multiple multi-core computers. As such, modelers can minimize model runtimes at a minimal cost using the high-speed parallel processing services offered by BREEZE.
Modelers have the option to seamlessly submit their AERMOD runs to the BRMS through either their My BREEZE account or the BREEZE AERMOD interface. Once modelers have submitted the AERMOD model runs to the BRMS, email notifications will inform the users of the model run status and provide a link to the completed results. Modelers also have the option to login to their My BREEZE account to access the results. The AERMOD results are contained in a single, compressed file with the .amr file extension. Users may download the BRMS results using the link available in the email or from their My BREEZE account.
Easily combine the .amz project file with the .amr results file to view BRMS results in BREEZE AERMOD by following the steps below:
Once the merge is complete, the .amz file will provide modelers with the same results that would have been generated if the run were processed locally on their computer. The BRMS executes the U.S. EPA AERMOD Fortran executable that has been parallelized for performance across multiple processors by BREEZE developers. In other words, the AERMOD executable used retains all of the U.S. EPA AERMOD code, but adds code to allow AERMOD to run on multiple processor cores simultaneously, producing faster results. As such, results generated by the BRMS are identical to those generated by the U.S. EPA single-processor version of the AERMOD Fortran executable.
