The Quesnel Air Quality Roundtable identified air quality dispersion modelling as one tool that can be used to assist in managing air quality in the Quesnel Airshed. This reporthas been prepared for the Quesnel Air Quality Roundtable in accordance with Section 3.0 F of the Air Monitoring and Assessment Strategy for Quesnel BC, 2000-2005 (Plain and Zirnhelt, 2000). Under section 3.0 F, dispersion modelling techniques are to be used to identify source contributions to poor air quality. There are many benefits to using an air quality model for airshed management planning.For example, the model could be used to manage sources in the region by determining the effects of reducing/increasing emissions on ambient air quality. Sources can be apportioned to determine the most cost beneficial method to improve air quality in different areas of the airshed. The modelling platform can be used for future modelling work as new industrial projects are proposed for the airshed, or as the community emissions change in size, s
