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.


area: air quality
objectives: simulation
description: 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:
