In a continuing effort to present current knowledge on heated plume prediction, nomograms are presented that describe the behavior of surface jets for a wide range of ambient and initial discharge conditions encountered in practice. An attempt is made to present the material in a concise manner and in a format that is clear and accessible to a nonspecialist user. Many fundamental derivations are retained for further reading in the appendix; these undoubtedly would be of use to the specialist researcher. The nomograms provide qualitative results describing the surface plume trajectory, width, temperature, depth, surface area and time of travel along the plume centerline. The nomograms are not intended to be used as exclusive design tools for surface discharge problems nor for use in a precise prediction of any specific surface plume condition. The nomograms are generated predominately from an idealized mathematical model of a plume.
