A complete set of user instructions are provided for the MESOPUFF II regional-scale air quality modeling package. The MESOPUFF II model is a Lagrangian variable-trajectory puff superposition model suitable for modeling the transport, diffusion, and removal of air pollutants from multiple point and area sources at transport distances beyond the range of conventional straight-line Gaussian plume models (i.e., beyond about 10-50 km). It is an extensively modified version of the MESOscale PUFF (MESOPUFF) model with refined and enhanced treatment of advection, vertical dispersion, removal, and transformation processes. The MESOPUFF II model is one element of an integrated modeling package that also includes components for preprocessing of meteorological data (READ56, MESOPAC II) and postprocessing of concentration data MESOFILE II). Complete user instructions and test case input/output are provided for each of these programs.
