MONTECARLO is a new atmospheric dispersion model in which a pollutant is simulated by a set of Lagrangian particles. The motion of each particle is the sum of the two components: the mean wind flow plus a semi-random term accounting for turbulent situations. These components are simulated by Monte-Carlo numerical generators. The code is largely based on routines on an existing code, MCLAGPAR, which has been further tested and improved. The model now contains several new important features, such as the buoyant plume and various simulation schemes of the inhomogeneous turbulence in a convective boundary layer.
