The paper presents a brief tutorial example and describes the benefits of emission inventory data processing for air quality modeling using the windows of the Study Planner of the Models-3 environmental modeling system. The functions of the key windows and the procedure for using them are illustrated using a 21 column by 21 row spatial grid with 12 km cell resolution, centered on Birmingham, Alabama. The Study Planner makes manipulation of input data and processing programs relatively simple and flexible. It is not necessary to change processor coding for different study areas, spatial resolutions, and time, to remember the locations of data files and processors in the system, and to use command line instructions to initiate and control the processing system for each step.
