PLUVUE is a visibility model designed to predict transport, atmospheric diffusion, chemical conversion, optical effects and surface deposition of point-source emissions. PLUVUE performs plume optics calculations in two modes. In the Plume-based mode, the visual effects are calculated for a variety of lines of sight and observer locations relative to the plume parcel; in the observer based mode, the observer position is fixed and visual effects are calculated for the specific geometry defined by the positions of the observer, plume, and sun.
