AERMET Output Files for AERMOD Model Input

This meteorological data is used to predict maximum modeled concentrations for New Source Review and Prevention of Significant Deterioration air quality modeling. This meteorological data has been processed for use in the AERMOD modeling program. Ohio EPA assigns meteorological data by county, as described in Ohio Engineering Guide #69. All meteorological surface data is derived from 1-hour integrated surface hourly data and one-minute ASOS data (DSI-6405) from the National Weather Service for years 2013-2017 (except as noted below). The meteorological data was processed June 2018, using version 18018 of AERMET, version 15272 of AERMINUTE and version 13016 of AERSURFACE, with a 0.5 m/s calm wind cutoff. Surface characteristics were determine for 12 sectors on a monthly basis, and monthly Bowen ratios were determined from the most recent 30-year precipitation normals for each surface station. All meteorological data was processed with the ‘‘ADJ_U*’’ option. Additional meteorological data from alternative sites are available by email request.

 As a precautionary response to COVID-19, Ohio EPA is currently operating with most staff working remotely. If you are working with our staff on a current project and you know the name of the employee you are working with, email them at firstname.lastname@epa.ohio.gov or call them directly. The Agency website has contact information for every district, division, and office. In order to reach us, please contact Ohio EPA’s main phone line at (614) 644-3020 or the main line for the division or office you are trying to reach.

After March 23, our district offices and Central Office will be temporarily closed and will have increasingly limited ability to receive deliveries, plans, etc. All entities are encouraged to submit plans, permit applications, etc., electronically where there are existing avenues to do so, such as the eBusiness Center (eBiz). Please refer to the list of available services on the main eBiz webpage. We encourage you to make use of all that apply, even if you have not used eBiz in the past. Plans under 25 MB can be emailed. For large plans over 25 MB, entities should work with the reviewer/division to upload via LiquidFiles. Directions for submitting docs via LiquidFiles is available on YouTube. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you in advance for your understanding. If you wish to send hard copies of documents to any of Ohio EPA’s district offices, the best method to ensure we receive these documents is to send them via U.S. Mail. Since all offices are closed, deliveries outside of U.S. Mail (FedEx, UPS) will likely be returned because the offices are closed and deliveries cannot be made.

To report a spill or environmental emergency, contact the spill hotline (800) 282-9378 or (614) 224-0946
