Model Information
For more information about this model, go to www.epa.gov
Spatial Resolution
Spatial resolution is based on how model segments are defined. Mass balances are taken at each time step around the defined geometric segment.
Temporal Resolution
The temporal resolution ranges from steady state to hourly durations. The time step can be internally calculated or set by the user.
