    Dispersion modeling was carried out using EPA's VALLEY model, and site-specific meteorological data. The Valley Model was selected because it is one of the 40 CFR acceptable models for complex terrain. General requirements for data input to the EPA's VALLEY dispersion model are described in this section, along with stack parameters. Although dispersion modeling is a valuable tool for an air assessment, the permit writer should recognize in emission modeling are incorporated into emission factors or emission equations that then are used to calculate emissions. Often, the factors and which . dispersion modeling in complex terrain in (Egan and Snyder, ) I have also performed accident and Consequence analyses for risk management plans and m6deling for both hypothetical and actual accidental release scenarios. I am the co-author of a book about compliance with USEPA's Risk Management Program under the Clean Air Act.

Atmospheric motion and dispersion over topography characterized by irregular (or regular) hill-valley or mountain-valley distributions are strongly dependent upon three general sets of variables. These are variables that describe topographic geometry, synoptic-scale winds and surface-air temperature distributions.

In addition, pollutant concentration distributions also depend upon location Cited by: CTDMPLUS – A complex terrain dispersion model (CTDM) plus algorithms for unstable situations (i.e., highly turbulent atmospheric conditions).
