Evaluation of a regulatory system designed to control industrial air emissions and an analysis of an air dispersion model case study
MetadataShow full item record
A case study of four sources in Giles County, Virginia served to illustrate the functional relationships of the system's components. A computer program, the Integrated Gaussian Model (IGM), predicted ambient air concentrations of pollutants resulting from the emissions by the four sources in the case study. The model application provided an opportunity to evaluate actual data produced by one of the system's primary detailed design components. Analysis of the results indicated that at least two of the Giles County sources in the region exceed the limits imposed by the system's criteria and thus have adverse impact on the environment.
