Abstract

STEM-II model (Carmichael et al, 1984) has been applied around As Pontes Power Plant to estimate dry deposition velocities of different gas and particulate pollutants (SO], NO], NO]", SO/"), covering a 7-days period. This environment is characterised by complex terrain and sea influence, with changing weather covering different dispersion conditions and precipitation rates. In order to estimate these dry deposition velocities, three different methods were applied in the STEM-II model: (a) the original dry deposition velocities included in this model (version of 199
