16.1004.FR1B.V1_a PART B: CHANDLER FACILITY APPENDIX B-1 APPENDIX B-1: CHANDLER FACILITY METEOROLOGY This appendix presents a summary of the meteorology extracted from the validated TAPM modelling (see Part A) representative of the proposed Chandler Facility. Meteorological Modelling In the absence of any sufficient period of measured onsite meteorological data, site representative meteorological data for this project was generated using a combination of the TAPM and AERMET meteorological models in a format suitable for using in the AERMOD dispersion model. The details of the meteorological modelling methodology are outlined in the following sections. Selection of the Meteorological Year The Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) maintains automatic weather stations (AWS) throughout Australia. The closest such station to the Project site was identified as Alice Springs Airport (Station # 15590). In order to determine a representative meteorological year for use in dispersion modelling, consecutive five years of meteorological data (2011-2015) from Alice Springs Airport were analysed against the long term meteorological conditions. Specifically, the following parameters were analysed: Percentage of calm wind speed events (wind speed <0.5 m/s). Calm wind conditions are conducive to higher concentrations of odour due to poor dispersion of the odour plume. Hourly wind speeds observed at 9:00 am and 3:00 pm. Hourly temperature at 9:00 am and 3:00 pm. Hourly relative humidity at 9:00 am and 3:00 pm. Based on this analysis, it was concluded that the year 2015 was representative of the last five years of meteorological conditions experienced at the Proposal site (refer to Appendix A1 of Part A) and hence the 2015 calendar year was adopted for use in this AQIA.
