A numerical model for predicting the precipitation scavenging of reactive pollutants from power plant plumes has been developed. The model, called SMICK (Scavenging Model Incorporating Chemical Kinetics), calculates collection, liquid-phase chemical reaction, and desorption, if any, of multiple plume-bound pollutants as they interact with falling raindrops and are ultimately deposited on the surface. Calculations for any specific aqueous-phase kinetics mechanism can be performed with the model by expressing the mechanism in appropriate sub-routine form. The model has been tested against field experiment data.
