Course Description

Course Description: Turbulence in the atmosphere, Equations and concepts. The turbulent kinetic energy balance. Statistical models of diffusion and Taylor’s theory. Gaussian model. K-diffusion models. Monte Carlo diffusion models. Complex terrain and turbulent diffusion. Long-Range transport and Lagrangian models. Evaluation of model performance. Dispersion of fumes and plumes (the most common models such as ISC-prime, AERMOD, CALPUFF, and SCREEN3 will be used). Furthermore, meso-meteorological models such as SAIMM, MM5, WFR and UAM, CAMx, CMAQ chemical transport models will be discussed.
