The document describes a recommended procedure for evaluating the performance of air quality dispersion models, and for selecting the best performing model for particular regulatory applications. The procedure is based on direct comparisons between measured and model-predicted concentrations to establish the accuracy of each model. The document includes an example evaluation using SO2 data collected at four midwestern power plants in which the performance of MPTER and one other rural air quality model were compared.
