The purpose of the prognostic evaluation process was to determine if prognostic meteorological data are suitable for input into AERMOD. The goal of the evaluation was to determine if such prognostic data was comparable to NWS or site-specific meteorological data and, how AERMOD performance to observed concentrations compares based on prognostic meteorological data with simulations based on NWS data or site-specific data. This report details the evaluation process used to determine the feasibility of prognostic meteorological data for use in AERMOD.
