INPUFF is a Gaussian Integrated PUFF model. The Gaussian puff diffusion equation is used to compute the contribution to the concentration at each receptor from each puff every time step. Computations in INPUFF can be made for a single or multiple point sources at up to 100 receptor locations. In practice, however, the number of receptors should be kept to a minimum. In the default mode, the model assumes a homogeneous wind field. However, the user has the option of specifying the wind field for each meteorological period at up to 100 user-defined grid locations. Three dispersion algorithms are utilized within INPUFF for dispersion downwind of the source. Optionally the user can incorporate his own subroutines for dispersion and plume rise. Removal is incorporated through deposition and gravitational settling algorithms. A software plotting package is provided to display concentration versus time for a given receptor and the puff trajectories after each simulation time.
