PLUVUE II: Plume Visibility Model
PLUVUE II is a single point source air pollution model developed
to evaluate the visibility reduction due to a plume of sulphur
or nitrogen oxides in an urban environment. It is based on the
gaussian solution of the transport and diffusion equation, but
can take into account deposition and certain chemical reactions.
gaussian plume, visibility reduction,
single point sources, urban sites, sulphur
oxides, nitrogen oxides, short term
The model is part of UNAMAP and is available on diskette from:
