Abstract

Previous studies at SRI International (Johnson et al., 1978 ; Bhumralkar et al., 1979 and 1981) developed a puff trajectory model for regional-scale air pollution modeling. The SRI model exists in several forms : The simpler form (EURMAP-1) can be used to obtain long-term averages ; the more complicated form (EURMAP-2 ) is used for short-term pollution episodes.
