A generalized scheme is presented for estimating atmospheric pollutant dispersion parameters as a function of release height. Further development is needed to refine the scheme for more generalized applicability, since, as documented in this discussion, the scheme requires as input meteorological data not routinely available. The scheme incorporates results from various studies, and once it is more practically structured it will prove useful for characterizing dispersion from tall sources in a variety of situations. The generalized scheme was developed particularly for Gaussian plume modeling; therefore, it is restricted to modeling applications having flat terrain and having steady-state meteorological conditions.
