Abstract
PAL is an acronym for an air quality model which applies a Gaussian plume diffusion algorithm to point, area, and line sources. The model is available from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and can be used for estimating hourly and short-term average concentrations of non-reactive pollutants at multiple receptors from several sources of each type. PAL is intended to assess the impact on air quality, on scales of tens of meters to several kilometers, of portions of urban areas such as shopping centers, large parking areas, and airports. Level terrain is assumed, and pollutant removal processes are ignored. This report is a supplementary User's Guide to a modified version of PAL, PAL-DS, model that utilizes Gaussian plume-type diffusion-deposition algorithms based on analytical solutions of a gradient-transfer model. The PAL-DS model can treat deposition of both gaseous and suspended particulate pollutants in the plume since gravitational settling and dry deposition of the particles are explicitly accounted for.
