Mr. Dan Dix possesses 16 years of air quality consulting experience and has worked with a variety of clients in multiple states. Many of the modeling studies were part of major New Source Review projects, while others involved air quality modeling to assess compliance with air toxics regulations or other state programs. Mr. Dix has directed and conducted air quality modeling studies that involve the U.S. EPA AERMOD air dispersion model and the approved CALPUFF modeling system. He has relied heavily on the use of Geographic Information System (GIS) and Surfer mapping software to aid in the presentation of air quality modeling results as well as to develop data for input into the air dispersion modeling systems. Mr. Dix is experienced in conducting quality assurance audits of meteorological monitoring systems. He has assisted with the installation and startup of systems utilizing Doppler SODAR and traditional tower mounted wind speed and direction measurements for facilities in mountainous terrain.
