The paper by Hanna (1986) on lateral dispersion provides very useful analyses of EPRI measurements of plumes from tall stack, large buoyancy sources. However, there are a few errors in the equations, and there are a few inconsistencies which require further discussion. The errors that the author noticed all originate in the section which pertains to buoyancy effects sigma (sub y).
