AERSCREEN is a screening-level air quality model based on AERMOD (U.S. EPA, 2004a). The AERSCREEN model consists of two main components: (1) the MAKEMET program which generates a site-specific matrix of meteorological conditions for input to the AERMOD model; and (2) the AERSCREEN command-prompt interface program. AERSCREEN interfaces with MAKEMET for generating the meteorological matrix, but also interfaces with AERMAP (U.S. EPA, 2004b) and BPIPPRM (Schulman et al. 2000; U.S. EPA, 2004d) to automate the processing of terrain and building information respectively, and interfaces with the AERMOD model utilizing the SCREEN option to perform the modeling runs. AERSCREEN interfaces with version 09292 and later versions of AERMOD and will not work with earlier versions of AERMOD. The AERSCREEN program also includes averaging time factors for worst-case 3-hr, 8-hr, 24-hr and annual averages.
