EPA urban dispersion models were modified to consider multiple station information on wind speed and direction. Three models were modified: the Real-Time Air-Quality-Simulation Model (RAM) and the Sampled-Chronological Input Model (SCIM), both short-term averaging models, and the Climatological Dispersion Model (CDM), a long term averaging model. Relatively straight forward modifications, which are useful and practical approximations have been made. The modifications had two basic objectives: the first, to develop techniques for describing wind conditions at any point within a region in which arbitrarily-located observing points exist; and second, to identify critical points in the dispersion algorithms at which the additional multiple-station wind data could be incorporated and to modify these computation routines accordingly. The modifications were compared among themselves on the basis of accuracy, computational efficiency and ease of use. Although no observational data was available to verify the various approaches, the results of applications to hypothetical meteorological situations indicate that more realistic results can be obtained by the incorporation of multiple-station data.
