The primary objective of the study is to implement a generalized dry deposition algorithm for particulate matter, suitable for regulatory use, into the Industrial Source Complex (ISC2) model. Reviews were conducted of methods for computing dry deposition velocities, plume depletion, and certain micrometeorological parameters from routinely available observations. Several observational data bases were identified from the literature and used in the testing and evaluation of ten particle deposition models. Recommendations for computing particle deposition velocities, plume depletion, and meteorological variables were made. These techniques have been incorporated into a revised version of the ISC2 model and related processor programs.
