Version 1.1 of MPRM provides a general purpose computer processor for organizing available meteorological data into a format suitable for use by air quality dispersion models. Specifically, the processor is designed to accommodate those dispersion models that have gained EPA approval for use in regulatory decision making. The first stage retrieves the meteorological data from computer tape or disk files and processes the data through various quality assessment checks. The second stage collects all data available for a 24-hour period and stores these data in a combined (merged) format. The third stage reads the merged meteorological data and performs the necessary processing to produce a meteorological data file suitable for use by the specified dispersion model. Software Description: The software is written in the FORTRAN 77 programming language for implementation on an IBM 3090 or VAX computer. The software is distributed on 5 1/4-inch IBM PC-compatible diskettes. Data is in compressed format but a dearchive utility is included.
