Abstract : The scientific objective for our participation in MADONA was to investigate fundamental questions regarding the statistical properties of the instantaneous concentration fluctuations in smoke plumes and puffs. The joint- venture Porton Down experiments, with international participation and support facilitated this objective. Modelling objectives included investigation and experimental evaluation of flow and diffusion modelling based on our LINCOM/ RIMPUFF real-time codes.
