Dispersion models - vertical motion methods

Post by kaushistk007 » June 22nd, 2020, 2:07 pm

For dispersion models. If I'm interested only on the winds with in 100m AGL then what vertical motion methods might apply?

Generally using the model vertical velocity should be used. Why are you not interested in what is above 100 m for dispersion>

isosigma would cause the trajectory to stay at the same sigma level.

Thanks. Interested in the air closer to ground level because the pathogenic particles we are trying to model as 'windborne' are unlikely to be alive and invective after certain temperature. But, maybe 100 m AGL is too close to the ground.

Interesting. Different that what we usually deal with.
