Abstract

The Gaussian type air pollution dispersion and deposition model AEROPOL is developed at the Tartu Observatory, Estonia (Kaasik and Rõõm, 1997). The multiple reflections with partial adsorption from the underlying surface and capping inversion, as well as the initial rise of a buoyant plume with the inversion penetration, are included. The wet deposition is included considering different features of rain and snow. The concentrations of pollutants, dry and wet deposition fluxes could be computed. The computing code is written in Turbo Pascal and designed for operational use in Windows’95.
