Use this tag when asking questions related to Gaussian plume model which is the most accepted computational approach to calculating the concentration of a pollutant at a certain point.

The Gaussian plume model is the most accepted computational approach to calculating the concentration of a pollutant at a certain point. This model describes the transport and mixing of the pollutants. It assumes dispersion in the horizontal and vertical direction will take the form of a normal Gaussian curve with the maximum concentration at the center of the plume.
