Models-3 is a flexible software system designed to simplify the development and use of environmental assessment and other decision support tools. It is designed for applications ranging from regulatory and policy analysis to understanding the complex interactions of atmospheric chemistry and physics. The June 1999 release of Models-3 contains a Community Multi-Scale Air Quality (CMAQ) modeling system for urban to regional scale air quality simulation of tropospheric ozone, acid deposition, visibility, and fine particles. Principal improvements since the initial release in June 1998 include the availability of a full port of Models-3 to Windows-NT based computers. This Installation and Operation Manual includes an overview of the system archiecture, installation requirements, procedures for installation of the Models-3 server and clients, establishing users, Models-3 system start-up and shut-down, loading of data sets, descriptions of system administration functions, and installation examples.
