Re-examination of the assumptions and parameters of the Gaussian dispersion model Conference Paper uri icon


  • The modeling of air pollution dispersion is becoming increasingly more important to the regulatory process. Dispersion models that provided accurate estimations of downwind concentrations of pollutant are needed to insure reliable and fair regulation of pollutant sources. Present Gaussian models inaccurately apply parameters that are essential to determining the concentration and the time averaged that the concentration represents. These present models over predict as a results of this misapplication. A new model being developed, re-applies these parameters based on their historical development.
