Modeling

Air Services is well-versed in the complex issues associated with PSD and state permits including visibility and air-quality-related value (AQRV) analyses. Our experienced staff can guide our clients through the maze of regulations and provide the technical expertise needed in negotiations with state and Federal Land Managers to define appropriate protocols and methods for assessing impacts. We strive to work with our clients and regulators to come to solutions that meet the needs of our clients and the environment.

  • Traditional regulatory models (CALPUFF, ISCST3, AERMOD, and PRIME variants, ACE model)
