At the 12th Conference on Air Quality Modeling, the United States Environmental Protection Agency    (EPA) reviewed several development initiatives to improve the AERMOD model. These initiatives  include   the following areas: 1) low wind speed conditions, 2) building downwash, 3) dispersion from  overwater sources, 4) NO2 modeling issues, 5) source characterization / plume rise issues, and 6) treatment of the plume behavior in convective conditions.

This presentation will address comments received and ongoing further progress in these areas in mid-2020.


Bob Paine is an associate Vice President in the air quality services group within AECOM’s environment group. He  is responsible for the strategic business and research direction in the areas of air quality at AECOM and leads  AECOM’s Air Quality Modeling Center of Excellence. He is a Certified Consulting Meteorologist and a Qualified Environmental Professional with 45 years of experience in air quality modeling and consulting with AECOM.  He has worked with the United States Environmental Protection Agency on the design, coding, evaluation, and documentation of several air quality dispersion models over a period of 35 years, including AERMOD, which is the  US EPA’s preferred short-range dispersion model.
