Propagation modeling

Assessing how pollutants propagate through the environment is an important component in assessing the comfort, health, and safety impacts of a project. RSG skillfully applies propagation modeling tools to assess noise and air pollution impacts for mobile, area, and stationary sources.
RSG often integrates propagation models with other modeling techniques (e.g., dispersion modeling) to create advanced air and noise models for line sources like roadways, point sources like factories, area sources like communities, and thermal sources like liquefied natural gas fires. These comprehensive models allow our clients to make informed decisions on projects and communicate plans and efficiently navigate permitting processes.
