The Westvaco data set consists of detailed records of hourly emissions, meteorological and SO2 air quality data collected in the vicinity of the Westvaco Corporation Paper Mill at Luke, Maryland during the period December 1979 through November 1981. The purpose of the Westvaco monitoring program was to acquire the data needed to select the most appropriate complex terrain dispersion model for use in establishing an SO2 emission limitation for the Luke Mill. The major objectives of the work described in this report were to: (1) analyze and evaluate the Westvaco meteorological and air quality data in order to develop the most suitable data set to evaluate complex terrain dispersion models; and (2) use the Westvaco data set to evaluate the performance of EPA's Valley, Complex I and Complex II models, the H. E. Cramer Company's SHORTZ model and Westvaco Corporation's Luke Mill Model (LUMM).
