Abstract

The Lagrangian Adaptative Volume Plume Model (AVP) was used to simulate the dynamics of a power plant plume during a typical sea breeze period at the east coast of Spain. Data collected during the MECAPIP project around a power plant were used to reproduce the shapes and general behavior of plumes observed by an instrumented aircraft. Results from these simulations show that the model can predict the temporal plume pathway and plume shapes that are frequently observed during sea-breeze events. Concentration patterns were well simulated during fumigation conditions. 1 Introduction Several summer measurement campaigns were launched in the surroundings of the Castellon oil-fired power plant, as part of the MECAPIP and RECAPMA projects, sponsored by the EC, Millan et al.,[l].
