Abstract

An operational model employing an analytical solution of the advection diffusion equation is presented. The solution allows for variations in the wind and exchange coefficients with height. The model can handle multiple sources and multiple receptors, simulating time-varying conditions, where each time interval is treated as a stationary case. The model output is a statistical summary of the concentrations computed at each receptor, for each time step, and due to each source. Partial and total concentrations are computed for hourly and multi-hour averages. The highest and second-highest values are also evaluated. The performance of the model has been assessed using the Copenhagen and Kincai
