An initial validation of an Air Quality Assessment Model for Naval air operations was conducted at NAS Miramar, CA. A previously developed model was updated to appropriately represent 1978/79 operations and then evaluated for prediction sensitivity to variations in meteorological and dispersion model parameters. A joint effort with the Naval Air Propulsion Center, the Environmental Protection Agency/Northrup Services, Inc. and PMTC, Pt. Mugu was conducted to obtain detailed data over a one-week period. Comparisons of model predictions with the limited initial measured concentration data indicated that: (1) predicted CO concentrations were in good agreement with measurement, (2) predicted NOX concentrations from aircraft idle/taxi operations were too low, and (3) predicted total hydrocarbons and particulate concentrations were too high for aircraft idle/taxi operations and too low for environ sources.
