Abstract
The Pollution Episodic Model (PEM) is an urban-scale model designed to predict short-term average ground-level concentrations and deposition fluxes of one or two gaseous or particulate pollutants at multiple receptors. The two pollutants may be non-reactive, or chemically-coupled through a first-order chemical transformation. Up to 300 isolated point sources and 50 distributed area sources may be considered in the calculations. Concentration and deposition flux estimates are made using the mean meteorological data for an hour. Up to a maximum of 24 hourly scenarios of meteorology may be included in an averaging period. The concentration algorithms used in PEM are specially developed to account for the effects of dry deposition, sedimentation, and first-order chemical transformation.
