Abstract:

Using the Gaussian plume model, this paper considered the effects of terrain, pollutant decay and precipitation scavenging, and proposed the formula for estimating long-term average ground level concentration for the power plants high stack. Since parameters such as wind, stability, mixing depth, etc. were calculated from routine meteorological data, the average concentration could be estimated without any field observation. This is a method with significance in practical use and economy for selecting a preconstruction plant site and assessing air quality.
