Central Campus Air Quality Model (CCAQM) Instructions
From the point
source Gaussian dispersion equation for a smokestack of interest,
you can calculate the ground level concentration of the pollutant of
interest at any receptor. The concentrations of the pollutants from
the line and point sources are added to get a total concentration of
the pollutant. An example of a point source modeled in addition to
the central campus network of line sources for CO, is given below.
Model Output - Total CO Concentrations at Designated Receptors
rates downwind of the source are averaged over time and can be
represented by a normal distribution.
rate from the smokestack is constant.
