The use of SIAM-O enables you to locate and predict the potential occurrence of unpleasant odours by means of meteorological simulation and dispersion systems. It can be used either by public authorities with odour problems, or by industries (waste management, chemical industry, etc.) whose activity may lead to the occurrence of unpleasant odours.
Its main features are:
- Trajectory Calculations – provide information on the path which a particular gas causing unpleasant odours emitted by a known source will take.
- Back-tracking Calculations – provide information on the origin of the mass of air that has affected a specific point in the past in order to determine its origin.
- Odour Dispersion Forecasting – provides information about how a certain substance causing unpleasant odours will be dispersed in the atmosphere in the coming days.
Among the tool’s different features, we can highlight the email alerts, with unpleasant odour limit exceedance alerts and warnings of possible weather hazards that may affect a particular activity.
