Katestone specialises in dispersion modelling – also referred to as Air Quality Modelling – a powerful tool that simulates air pollution associated with industry, mining, intensive agriculture, infrastructure and urban activities.

Dispersion models are integral to:

  • Environmental impact assessment studies for development approval or licence
  • Investigations of complaints or pollution incidents
  • Pollution control, management and reduction studies
  • Health-risk assessment studies
  • Pollution forecasting and online modelling tools
  • Optimisation studies.
We can also provide you with a:

  • Customised Airshed Modelling System that integrates your emissions inventories and meteorological data with the dispersion model
  • Proactive Emissions Control Management Tool that links the dispersion model to our meteorological forecasts or onsite weather station data
Katestone’s team are also experts with regulatory- and research-grade dispersion models, such as:
  • Steady state  – Ausplume, ISC, Aermod and Dispmod
  • Traffic – Caline and Cal3QHCR
  • 3D – TAPM and CALPUFF
  • Photochemical – TAPM-CTM
  • Meteorological – TAPM, CALMET and WRF
