1 Review
This is the new, fourth edition of the book on dispersion modeling of continuous, buoyant air pollution plumes which takes nothing for granted. Every equation is completely derived step-by-step without any complicated or advanced mathematics. Every constraint and assumption is fully explained. A set of self-study exercises is also included with the book.The subjects covered in the book include atmospheric turbulence and stability classes, buoyant plume rise, Gaussian dispersion calculations and modeling, time-averaged concentrations, wind velocity profiles, fumigations, trapped plumes, flare stack plumes and much more ... with a great many example calculations. Copies of the book have been purchased in the U.S.A., Canada, Mexico, South America, Europe, Australia, Africa and Asia (in a total of 57 countries), and are available in over 130 libraries worldwide. The book has been very widely referenced and cited in the technical literature and on the Internet.

Of the many books that discuss dispersion modeling, this book offers easy to understand explanations of the basic fundamentals. The book is well organized and takes the reader through the different aspects of dispersion phenomena and related topics.
As part of my work, I sometimes need to conduct gas dispersion modeling to solve accidental release problems. For Gaussian dispersion modeling, I have found that the formulations in this book are easy to understand and easy to use. The book has practically all of the data that a user needs to get started and to obtain results. I recommend this book to all engineers who have an interest in gas dispersion modeling regardless of their experience level in performing such calculations.
The book is now in its Fourth Editiion (2005) and has been purchased in 76 countries. It has been referenced 574 times in the technical literature, including the regulatory publications of 23 state or national governmental agencies worldwide and has been used as recommended reading or a textbook in 46 university courses.
Currently, the book is available online as a downloadable PDF version from www.air-dispersion.com.
