The Complex Terrain Model Development (CTDM) project is being sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to develop atmospheric dispersion models to simulate air pollutant concentrations in complex terrain that result from emission from large sources. The emphasis of the program is to develop models with known accuracy and limitations for simulating one-hour concentrations in high terrain during stable conditions. The Fifth Milestone Report documents work accomplished from June 1984 through May 1985. It describes in detail the August 1984 Full Scale Plume Study, including its setting, the experimental design, and the resulting data base. The further development of CTDM is described. Mathematical descriptions of the modifications to the model are presented. The latest version of the model has been tested using a subset of impingement hours from the CCB, HBR, and FSPS data bases. An EPA Fluid Modeling Facility report describing towing tank simulations to characterize the effects of stability on the horizontal and vertical deflections around an isolated hill is included as an appendix.
