  • The site abbreviations shown in the first column are used in the downloaded files for identification.

  • The meteorological data here have passed U.S. EPA’s requirement for 90% completeness by quarter for wind direction, wind speed, and temperature.

  • The most recent 5 years with complete data is shown for each meteorological station. Years which do not meet the completeness criteria have been excluded.

  • The Compton (CMPT) station is not available for download as the station does not have 5 years of data that meets quality assurance procedures.  However, in special cases where it can be demonstrated that there are no other meteorologically-representative stations within the Basin for the modeled source(s), 3 years of processed data (2012, 2015, and 2016) are available upon request and approval of use.  Technical justification will need to be provided within the modeling report on why this station was considered more appropriate than other stations.
