In general terms, the superior resolution of the differential algebraic equation (DAE) that we have put forward resides in its ability to solve, for each time interval and at the same time as the transfer equation is solved, 1 or several equations describing phenomena which are remotely associated with the transfer but which can have an effect on the result of the simulation. For example, it is fairly easy to incorporate an equation into the model to describe the elevation of the particles above the emission zone, if the emission involves a release of heat.
