Estimation and parameterisation of the influence of turbulent regimes on pollution characteristics in the PBL

Published Online:pp 327-341

An approach which includes joint use of resistance laws, PBL, and diffusion models, coordinated with the method of moments has been developed. The influence of a set of turbulent regimes, parameterised by external parameters in similarity format, on diffusion processes in PBL has been studied on this basis.
