Title: Validation studies of air quality models at Dulles Airport: analysis of airport emissions

Abstract

Results of current air quality model validation studies are reviewed, and preliminary results of comparisons betwen predicted carbon monoxide concentrations from SST's and those measured during the Concorde monitoring program are presented. Both the initial plume rise and the jet wake dispersion of effluents were found to have important effects on pollutant concentration level estimates for receptors located within 1 km of the source pathway. Most air quality models do not take into account these factors and thus overestimate pollutant concentration associated with aircraft emissions. U.S. Air Force efforts to develop a model for airport pollution monitoring are summarized. (1 diagram, 6 graphs, 17 references, 4 tables)
