What issues have been seen recently
What issues have been seen recently?

  • No ownership of the program

  • Conflicting procedural requirements

  • Loss of experienced personnel

  • Data manipulation errors

  • Outdated/unsupported software


Solutions
Solutions

  • Insure that someone owns the meteorological monitoring system

  • If in doubt about your program, have an outside expert perform an audit

  • Capture the experience of personnel that are leaving the organization

  • Vigorously check meteorological data manipulations, unit conversions, and format changes

  • Insure that your people have the right tools


Introducing metdata
Introducing MetData

  • FANP’s response to the issues we’ve seen recently

  • PC/Windows based software

  • Intended to help both meteorologists and non-meteorologists in maintaining high quality meteorological data

  • Data storage, checking, editing, JFD tables, atmospheric dispersion factors, data reformatting all in one application


Metdata
MetData

  • Data checking module produces a report with an explanation of why the data were considered suspect and suggestions of how to check data validity

  • Data may be flagged by the user as “BAD” with the click of the mouse

  • Data editing report shows changes on a line-by-line basis


Metdata1
MetData

  • Helps you meet regulatory requirements by producing annual meteorological data summaries in the form of joint frequency distribution tables of wind speed and direction as a function of atmospheric stability

  • Produces atmospheric dispersion factors for routine effluent releases

  • These factors can be used to rank locations in the annual Land Use Census

  • Reformats your meteorological data for use with the NRC computer code ARCON96
