This report summarizes the results of an evaluation study for the new Industrial Source Complex (ISC) Dispersion Model (see PB80-133036). The ISC Model, which is designed to assess the air quality impact of emissions from large industrial source complexes, contains several features which are not contained in any of the dispersion models recommended in the current Guideline on Air Quality Models (EPA, 1978). The most important of these new features are the gravitational settling/dry deposition option and the building wake effects option. (The ISC Model's distance-dependent plume rise option is considered in this report to be an integral part of the building wake effects option.) Because many of the basic components of the ISC Model have been previously tested by EPA and others, the focus of the ISC Model evaluation study was on testing the key features which distinguish the model from the other generally available dispersion models. It is important to note that the available data sets were not sufficient in number or detail to validate the new features of the ISC Model in a strict statistical sense. However, it was possible to compare the performance of the ISC Model with that of current models.
