The guidance document is designed to assist the user in the evaluation of plume visual impact as required by the Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) and visibility regulations of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). A plume will be visible if its constituents scatter or absorb sufficient light so that the plume is brighter or darker than its viewing background (e.g., the sky or a terrain feature such as a mountain). The objective of the document is to provide guidance on the assessment of plume visual impacts, including the use of a plume visual impact screening model (VISCREEN), which can be used to calculate the potential visual impact of a plume of specified emissions for specific transport and dispersion (meteorological) conditions.
