Abstract

A numerical model for plume rise is used, together with a model of the urban mixing layer, to study the effects of the inhomogeneous temperature structure of the city of Leeds on the trajectory of effluent plumes. Consideration is given to chimney location, source strength, city topography, areal sources, wind speed and rural ground level temperatures.
