Abstract The Environmental Protection Agency conducted a scientific review of a set of eight complex terrain dispersion models. TRC Environmental Consultants, Inc. calculated and tabulated a uniform set of performance statistics for the models using the Cinder Cone Butte and Westvaco Luke Mill data bases. Three members of the EPA Meteorology and Assessment Division reviewed the performance statistics and presented objective analyses of the models and their performance. An American Meteorological Society Steering Committee summarized the reviews and formulated three conclusions: (1) none of the models can be regarded as up-to-date scientifically; (2) one model exhibited much better performance statistics than did the others; and (3) overprediction was the most common problem with the models. The report consists of the AMS summary and copies of three independent reviews conducted to evaluate the model performance.
