A SUGGESTED MODEL FOR AIRPORT AIR POLLUTION MODELLING

An atmospheric dispersion model has been developed for general use ranging from dispersion of a single local source to mesoscale or synoptic scale dispersion of air pollutants. The model is termed the Diffusion Wind Atmospheric Dispersion Model and allows meteorological conditions and pollutant source characteristics to vary in the horizontal, in the vertical, and in time. Several different pollutants can be dispersed simultaneously in the model, while processes such as fallout, deposition, and chemical transformation can be simulated. Application of the model to the air pollution problems associated with airfield operations can be shown.
