||TUPOS estimates dispersion directly from fluctuation statistics at plume level and calculates plume rise and partial penetration of the plume into stable layers using vertical profiles of wind and temperature. TUPOS can be used for short-term (hours to days) impact assessment of inert pollutants from single or multiple sources and can be expected to have greatest accuracy for locations within 10 km of the source. Although TUPOS will make computations for receptors having any groundlevel elevation, it is not intended as a complex terrain model, but rather as a model for calculations over flat or gently rolling terrain. TUPOS will optionally treat buoyancy-induced dispersion but does not include building downwash, deposition, or fumigation.
||The model is contained on 5 1/4-inch, double density (360K) diskettes, compatible with the IBM PC microcomputer, ready for uploading to an IBM model 3090 computer. Price includes documentation, PB86-181310, PB86-181328, and PB86-241031.
