Source Characterizations

When conducting an ambient air quality impact analysis, the characteristics of the proposed sources must be defined within the air quality model.  Differing source types are used to describe emission releases within the model and should reflect the actual design characteristics of the release point.  In addition, information regarding the facility layout, property boundary and surrounding terrain must be provided and can impact the outcome of the air quality analysis.  The following sections provide an overview of each component of the modeling study including any requirements that are specific to the State of Missouri.
