MESOPUFF: Mesoscale Puff ModelIt is a regional scale air pollution model, based on the puff approach, that tries to take into account the variability of physical and meteorological conditions that may take place at these scales. Each puff may follow an independent trajectory, it has a different diffusion, different chemical reactions, and dry and wet deposition. Up to five pollutants may be modelled: sulphur dioxide, sulphate, hydrogen oxide, nitric acid and nitrates. It works with time scales of few days.
The package includes a preprocessor for meteorological data and a post processor for concentration results.
