A Gaussian plume model was modified to estimate the input of specific atmospheric pollutants into the Upper Great Lakes by dry deposition processes. The specific pollutants were: (1) total dissolved solids, (2) chlorides, (3) total nitrogen, (4) total phosphorus, (5) total silica, and (6) pesticides. Pollutant removal at a land or water surface by dry deposition processes was accounted for by including a deposition factor in front of the image terms in the conventional Gaussian concentration equation. The inclusion of this deposition factor necessitated a second equation which modeled the flux of material to the surface.
