As previously mentioned, the type of meteorology used in a model depends on the pollutant averaging period as well as the level of modeling and site characteristics. If the modeling is performed for a state implementation plan (SIP) or a PSD permit, five years of meteorological data are typically required.

Most screening models use a preselected set of meteorological conditions that provide the worst-case plume transport and ground-level concentrations. The basic data used by models include wind speed, wind direction, stability, temperature, and mixing height.
