In the context of this "Air Dispersion Modeling/Consultants" category, air dispersion models may be defined as computerized mathematical calculations for predicting the dispersion behavior of air pollutants emitted into the atmosphere. In the same context, consultants are those who offer air dispersion modeling services. Such consultants may be governmental agencies, research institutes, university faculty and post-graduate students, environmental consultants, industrial dispersion modeling practitioners, and pollution meteorologists. The many types of air dispersion models include those for modeling: the continuous emission of buoyant pollutant plumes; the non-continuous accidental releases of either buoyant or heavier-than-air (i.e., dense gas) pollutants; puff emissions; point-source emissions; area-source or line-source emissions; mobile transportation-source emissions; fire and smoke emission models; etc.
In the context of this "Air Dispersion Modeling/Software" category, air dispersion modeling software may be defined as computerized mathematical calculations for predicting the dispersion behavior of air pollutants emitted into the atmosphere. The many types of air dispersion models include those for modeling: the continuous emission of buoyant pollutant plumes; the non-continuous accidental releases of either buoyant or heavier-than-air (i.e., dense gas) pollutants; puff emissions; point-source emissions; area-source or line-source emissions; mobile transportation-source emissions; fire and smoke emission models; etc. Air quality modeling software for urban airsheds are probably best placed in the "Air Quality" category rather than in this "Air Dispersion" category. Sources for air dispersion modeling software include governmental agencies, research institutes, university faculty and post-graduate students, environmental consultants, industrial dispersion modeling practitioners, and pollution meteorologists.
