Atmospheric stability plays the most important role in the transport and dispersion of air pollutants. Different methods are used for stability determination with varying degrees of complexity. Most of these methods are based on the relative magnitude of convective and mechanical turbulence in atmospheric motions. Richardson number, Monin-Obukhov length, Pasquill-Gifford stability classification and Pasquill-Turner stability classification, are the most common parameters and methods. The… Expand

Numerical approximation to the effects of the atmospheric stability conditions on the dispersion of pollutants over flat areas
TLDR
The effects of the atmospheric stability conditions on the dispersion of solid and gas-phase pollutants emitted from an area source located on a flat region are explored and the near-road pollutant concentrations are highly correlated to the concentrations observed under neutral conditions. Expand

TLDR
The modelling approach called the mining air dispersion model (MADM) is developed to predict air pollutants concentration in the mining region while considering the deposition effect, and shows that neutral stability conditions are dominant for the study site. Expand
A new analytical model for wind turbine wakes based on Monin-Obukhov similarity theory
The wake flow behind a wind turbine induces a significant slowdown of wind velocity, leading to a great loss of power generation for the turbines located in the downstream region. Hence it is veryExpand
