Abstract:

The Air Force contracted with Argonne National Laboratory to develop a series of computer programs to assess the air quality impact of Air Force operations. These programs are called the Air Quality Assessment Model AQAM. The AQAM contains three computer codes A source emission inventory to quantify the hundreds of sources typically found on an airbase a short term emissiondispersion model to make hourly air quality predictions and a long term emissiondispersion model to make monthly or annual predictions. This report documents only the source emissions inventory computer code. While aircraft are emphasized, ground vehicles, space heating, and industrial sources can also be handled. Flow charts, listings, and brief descriptions of each subroutine are presented in this report. It is intended for readers with a computer programming background who wish to examine or alter the computer codes. Author
