Description

Air quality impact assessments for regulatory applications typically require the use of models such as CALPUFF, AUSPLUME and TAPM and to make full use of these models, a working knowledge of meteorology is essential. This course covers the fundamentals of meteorology including the essentials of atmospheric physics, such as wind and its variability, atmospheric turbulence, vertical wind and temperature profiles, boundary layer structure and behaviour. The influence of meteorological variables is discussed including sensitivity analysis of mixing height and the importance of wind speed and direction.
