A minimum of one year of site-specific data is preferred for refined and complex terrain models. However, these data often either are not available or require a year to collect. In most cases (i.e., noncomplex terrain), the National Weather Service (NWS) observations from a nearby station can be substituted in refined modeling applications. Five years of meteorological data from a representative station provide the best, reasonable representation of climatology at the station.
For refined, simple terrain modeling, representative data from both a NWS surface and upper air station are the required minimum. The model user can modify the data for input using standard EPA meteorological preprocessor programs. For complex terrain modeling, site-specific data are critical to represent the conditions within the local topographic regime. In most cases, site-specific data are incomplete for all the required parameters and must usually be supplemented by NWS preprocessed data. To retain
