The purpose of this brochure is to acquaint the reader with the basic concepts of air quality modeling and its application in air quality management. It is directed to non-technical audiences to explain what models are, how they are used, and what their limitations are as a tool in the air pollution control process. Several publications are listed for those who desire further information. It should be understood that models are mathematically derived tools. The reliability of predicted air quality estimates is directly dependent upon the detail and quality of the information used in applying the models. Their primary purpose is to serve as an aid in arriving at sound regulatory decisions.
