Lagrangian Modeling of Air Pollutants Dispersion from a Point Source
The ensemble average concentration due to an Instantaneous Point Source of an inert pollutant (<CIPS>) is given by the probability density of pollutant particle displacement G(x,t| x s,O), where x s is the source location and x is the particle location after a time t from the release.
