Grabbed industry's attention
Features seamless integration of today's leading air dispersion models
A single interface

1. Introduction top

No other software package comes close to the extensive list of standard features found in ISC-AERMOD view. Features that other packages require you to pay for as add-ons come included with ISC-AERMOD view. We feel many of these options are essential for our clients, options such as complete RAMMET & AERMET met data preprocessing and multiple pollutant utilities for modeling multiple pollutants in a single ISCST3, isc-PRIME or AERMOD run. As a result these features and many more are always included at no additional cost.

4. Technical summary top

The Industrial Source Complex - Short Term regulatory air dispersion model (ISCST3) is a Gaussian plume model and is widely used to assess pollution concentration and/or deposition flux on receptors, from a wide variety of sources.

AERMOD is the next generation air dispersion model which incorporates planetary boundary layer concepts. Further information about this model can be found by click here.

The Industrial Source Complex - Plume RIse Model Enhancements (isc-PRIME) dispersion model is similar to the ISCST3 model but contains enhanced building downwash analysis.

ISC-AERMOD view interface includes all standard modeling options in addition to the following :

  • ISC-AERMOD view has an integrated modeling environment: intuitive data input, model run, and full featured post-processing, with automatic gridding, blanking, contour plotting, and posting of your results.
  • Graphical input, where you can use your mouse to graphically define the location of stacks, receptor grids, discrete receptors, and the plant boundary.
  • Converts your Cartesian and polar receptor grids into discrete receptors with the option of automatic elimination of receptors within your plant boundary.
  • Extracts digital terrain heights for receptor elevations from 1 degree and 7.5 minute USGS Digital Elevation Models (DEMs), UK NTF and DTM, and XYZ formats.
  • Automatic creation of your terrain grid file, for dry depletion analysis in elevated or complex terrain, using DEMs.
  • isc view User's Guide uses pictures and graphical information to assist you in quickly grasping the manual's contents.
  • 3D visualization of your buildings and stacks with true 3D control and the ability to apply any texture to building surfaces.
  • The program checks valid ranges for all entry fields which will help save your time by preventing wrong entries.
  • You can view all the sources and receptors you have defined for your modeling project graphically in context with one or more site maps (in AutoCAD DXF, USGS DLG, LULC, BMP and Shapfile formats).
  • Before running your project, ISC-AERMOD view displays a report of all options selected along with a list of any missing information.
  • Powerful post-processor with overlay site-maps in AutoCAD DXF format, USGS DLG and LULC maps, Shapefile and Bitmap images, and automated "no-hassle" shaded contour plots. You can have multiple plots displayed at the same time on the screen. ISC-AERMOD view can also export your modeling results to Surfer.
  • Context-sensitive "Help that really helps" which includes status bar tips and full-blown on-line Help. The Help also contains sections of EPA's User's Guide facilitating understanding of the modeling requirements and alternatives.
The ISC-AERMOD view package comes with BPIP view (Building Downwash) and Rammet view and AERMET view (Meteorological Data Preprocessors).

ISC-AERMOD view comes with a 1 year of free upgrades and 1 year of technical support. You will be able to perform like an expert in no time!
