ALOHA is an acronym for Areal Locations of Hazardous Atmospheres.
ALOHA is the hazard modeling software program for the CAMEO software suite, which is used widely to plan for and respond to chemical/hazardous materials emergencies.
Details about a real or potential chemical/hazardous materials release can be entered into ALOHA and it will generate threat zone estimates for various types of hazards. ALOHA can model toxic gas clouds, flammable gas clouds, BLEVEs (Boiling Liquid Expanding Vapor Explosions), jet fires, pool fires and vapor cloud explosions. The threat zone estimates are shown on a grid in ALOHA and they can also be plotted on maps in MARPLOT, Esri's ArcMap, Google Earth and Google Maps. The red threat zone represents the worst hazard level; the orange and yellow threat zones represent areas of decreasing hazards.
