Abstract

Describes the incorporation of a model for an elliptical cross section into an urban plume model. The analysis is applied to both 'top hat' and Gaussian profile models and the important cases of a plume encountering an inversion or rising through stable air are discussed in detail. This fanning plume model describes not only radial length scales but is also used to calculate ground level concentrations enhanced by the presence of the high level inversion which restricts upward mixing and hence dilution.
