About this book

Providing a foundation for understanding dispersion modelling, this book/disk set determines the impacts of various sources of air pollution, including the effects of wind and turbulence, plume rise and Gaussian dispersion. Information is shown in summary graphs and in equations. The book presents 37 sample problems with solutions to show the estimation of atmospheric pollutant concentrations for many situations.


Contents

Introduction-How Does the Atmosphere Disperse Material and What Is a Dispersion Model? Estimates of Atmospheric Dispersion. Effective Height of Emission. Special Topics. Putting Gaussian Methods into Perspective. Using Computers for Dispersion Estimates. Use of the Computer Diskette. Example Problems. References. Appendix.
