NaviKnow is presenting a FREE Live webinar mini-course on Which Is It? Urban or Rural?, February 13th at noon CST. The Guideline on Air Quality Models (40 CFR 51 Appendix W) states in section 184.108.40.206 “for any dispersion modeling exercise, the urban or rural determination of a source is critical” and then provides two options: one that was used in one academic paper at one time nearly 50 years ago and lack specifics on how to categorize an area, and the other that “should be used with caution and generally not be applied to highly industrialized areas” when you are trying to represent an industrialized area. If you are using AERMOD, then there is a third method used to determine the surface characterization of the modeling domain.
If you are having to defend your (or someone else’s) modeling in court, which option do you choose and what is the explanation for your selection? Are you ready to provide a technical argument for the appropriateness of your selection? For something deemed critical, one would think the choices would be clear, precise, and unambiguous.
All this month, NaviKnow is going to identify conflicting regulatory guidance that could potentially put your dispersion modeling project at risk. In addition to pointing out the contradictory guidance and why there are conflicts, we will pose best practices on how to handle these situations.
