Coming and going: Transport and tracking

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The atmosphere is filled with many small objects that are moved around by the wind. These objects can come from natural sources such as ash from fires or volcanoes or anthropogenic sources such as pollutants emitted from cars or factories. Sometimes, it can be difficult to picture the need for atmospheric dispersion modeling. This chapter presents the concepts surrounding how to predict where and when things will move in the boundary layer.
