Introductory CALPUFF has the following objectives:
- Provide an overview of dispersion modelling theory.
- Teach use of CALPUFF Version 7 modelling system and CALMET.
- Enable course participants to make animations and still images of wind vectors, concentrations, deposition patterns, transport trajectories and wind roses.
- Describe recent model enhancements such as interfacing with ASOS and WRF/MM5 meteorological data sets, roadway simulations and new postprocessing capabilities.
- Present a model evaluation history and inter-comparison tests.
- Describe the use of Australian datasets including meteorology, terrain and land use.
Jenny has instructed at more than 68, three to five day Introductory and Advanced meteorological, dispersion modelling and odour training courses for various consultants and industry including Professional Organisations – AWMA, CASANZ, NACA, the US EPA, Universities and industry all around the world.
Jenny is the author of many published peer reviewed reports, papers and scientific articles and she regularly presents at international scientific conferences. She has been involved in developing model guidance documentation for both Australia and New Zealand.
CALPUFF training will be conducted using the CALApps GUI and surfer.
CALPUFF is a multi-layer, multi-species non-steady-state puff dispersion model, which can simulate the effects of time and space, varying meteorological conditions on pollutant transport, chemical transformation and plume depletion. CALMET is a diagnostic meteorological model consisting of a wind field module and micro-meteorological modules for over-water and over-land boundary layers. CALPUFF is a Guideline model recommended by regulatory agencies in Australia and New Zealand and many countries throughout the world. CALPUFF is suitable for a wide variety of applications, including long-range transport, and near-field applications involving complex flows and non-steady-state situations, such as in coastal applications, calm wind dispersion, stagnation, fumigation, complex terrain and recirculation situations (e.g., land-sea breezes). The model is suitable for source-receptor distances ranging from fence-line applications (tens of metres) to several hundred kilometres.
