This report describes two initial dilution plume models, RSB and UM, and model interface and manager, PLUMES, for preparing common model input and running the models. Two far-field algorithms are automatically initiated beyond the zone of initial dilution. In addition, PLUMES incorporates the flow classification scheme of the Cornell Mixing Zone Models (CORMIX), with recommendations for model usage, thereby providing a linkage between two existing EPA systems. The PLUMES models are intended for use with plumes discharged to marine and some freshwater bodies. Both buoyant and dense plumes, single sources and many diffuser outfall configurations may be modeled.
