This report describes the CALPUFF dispersion model and associated processing programs. The CALPUFF model described in this report reflect improvements to the model including (1) new modules to treat buoyant rise and dispersion from area sources (such as forest fires), buoyant line sources, and volume sources, (2) an improved treatment of complex terrain, (3) additional model switches to facilitate its use in regulatory applications, (4) an enhanced treatment of wind shear through puff splitting, and (4) an optional PC-based GUI. CALPUFF has been coupled to the Emissions Production Model (EPM) developed by the Forest Service through an interface processor. EPM provides time-dependent emissions and heat release data for use in modeling controlled burns and wildfires.
