The report provides instructions for the use of the POSTZ computer program, a post-processor for the SHORTZ air quality model. The POSTZ program is designed to read a sequential output tape of concentrations produced by the SHORTZ model. The POSTZ program provides summary tables of the highest concentrations for different averaging times. The POSTZ program allows the user to restrict the analysis to specific receptors, sources or periods of meteorological data. In addition, the user can scale the concentrations from a particular source if desired. The user can select between running or block averages, and can implement the EPA calms policy if desired. The output tables can be in the form of the highest five concentrations for each receptor, the top 50 concentrations for all receptors, or all concentrations computed to be above a user specified criteria value.
