Anchorage DEC Office Outage

Anchorage DEC offices are experiencing a phone and internet outage. Please call the mainline of the Juneau or Fairbanks office location for assistance. Report oil and hazmat spills in the Anchorage area during business hours or statewide after-hours: 907-891-0757. During business hours, spills in Northern or Southeast regions can still be reported to the respective local response team office.

AERMOD Meteorological Data

ADEC is providing the following previously approved AERMOD‐ready meteorological data files for informational purposes. Additional data sets will be provided over time.

Note: the representativeness of meteorological data for use in AERMOD modeling analyses must be assessed on a case-by-case basis. Data that are more recent, or otherwise more representative than those listed below may be available. Inclusion of a dataset in the following list, or lack of an AERMOD-ready AERMET-processed file, does not preclude the use of a dataset that better represents conditions at the site of the project. Applicants are advised to contact ADEC and seek concurrence regarding meteorological data selection prior to conducting their modeling analysis.

Permit applicants may use these files in an AERMOD modeling assessment if the measured parameters represent the plume transport conditions of their modeled emissions units. However, applicants may first need to reprocess outdated files with the current version of AERMET. ADEC can provide the previously developed AERMET input files to help with this task.
