The SHORTZ and LONGZ computer programs are designed to calculate the short-term and long-term ground-level pollutant concentrations produced at a large number of receptors by emissions from multiple stack, building and area sources. SHORTZ and LONGZ are applicable in either rural or urban areas of both flat and complex terrain. SHORTZ and LONGZ are written in FORTRAN and are specifically designed for use on a UNIVAC 1110 (or other UNIVAC 1100 series) computer. Both programs require a random-access mass storage device. SHORTZ requires approximately 55K words of core and LONGZ requires approximately 50K words of core. Volume II contains appendices which include: (1) complete listings of the SHORTZ and LONGZ programs, (2) example SHORTZ and LONGZ problems, (3) coding forms for card input to SHORTZ and LONGZ, (4) discussions of the development and testing of the stack-tip downwash and complex terrain algorithms used by SHORTZ and LONGZ, and (5) a SHORTZ meteorological preprocessor program for use with National Weather Service (NWS) surface and upper-air meteorological data.
