BLP - Buoyant Line and Point source dispersion modelBLP (Buoyant Line and Point source dispersion model) is an air pollution model explicitly developed to simulate the pollution by aluminium reduction plants and other industrial sources, where the effect of plumes generated by stationary line sources is relevant. It can be used in flat, rural areas within a range of 50 km of distance and can include up to 50 point sources and 10 parallel line ones.
It generates short term (1, 3, and 24 hours) concentration output on a maximum of 100 points at ground level, but can average these values on a monthly or yearly horizon. It also provides the contribution of each source to the total concentration at each receptor.
Input and output are through files.
