The American Meteorological Society and the Environmental Protection Agency formed a combined working group to develop improved algorithms for regulatory air dispersion models. This workgroup has developed the AERMOD model which is a steady state, plume model intended to be applied in those regulatory situations currently modeled with the Industrial Source Complex Model (ISC3). This model development project is moving into its final phases and the purpose of this paper is to examine the technical basis for the most recent AERMOD algorithms. In addition, there is a discussion of the performance of the model in relation to measurements at five research field studies over a wide variety of meteorological conditions and source configurations.
