Abstract
PAL is an acronym for this point, area, and line source algorithm. PAL is a method of estimating short-term dispersion using Gaussian-plume steady-state assumptions. The algorithm can be used for estimating concentrations of non-reactive pollutants at 30 receptors for averaging times of from 1 to 24 hours, and for a limited number of point, area, and line sources (30 of each type). Calculations are performed for each hour. The hourly meteorological data required are wind direction, wind speed, stability class, and mixing height. Single values of each of these four parameters are assumed representative for the area modeled. This algorithm is not intended for application to entire urban areas but is intended rather, to assess the impact on air quality, on scales of tens to hundreds of meters, of portions of urban areas such as shopping centers, large parking areas, and airports. Level terrain is assumed.
