Transportation Dispersion Modelling

Computer modelling is used to determine existing and future pollutant levels at sensitive receptors (i.e., residences, schools, hospitals, etc.) due to emissions from transportation sources. This type of modelling is typically completed for sensitive receptors within 500 m of the transportation source. Frequently used emission and dispersion models include CAL3QHCR, CALINE4, MOVES, MOBILE6.2, EDMS, and AERMOD.

Typical transportation sources modelled include roadway vehicles (cars, buses), locomotives, and aircraft. Novus provides these services for inclusion into an environmental assessment or for policy development.
