IMPROVEMENT OF RELIABLE LONG-DISTANCE ATMOSPHERIC TRANSPORT MODELS

Objective


Complex terrain effects, especially those arising from large topographical irregularities, have a considerable and complex effect on wind flow and deposition patterns. In the long range transport of radioactive (or other) pollutants, any gross topographical disturbance with a height comparable to the depth of the upstream boundary layer is expected to alter significantly that depth. Also, the topographical feature will have a significant influence on the transport and deposition of the pollutant due to changes in the wind flow pattern and turbulence intensity. The present task clarifies the influence of large topographical disturbances on long range transport of pollutant material.
