Prof. Romualdo Salcedo has developed IMDIS - A Teaching Tool for Air Pollution Dispersion Modeling. This book intends to serve as a reference to follow-up on a better comprehension of air pollution modeling with the aid of hands-on user-friendly software, highlighting the main advantages (but also disadvantages) of using Gaussian dispersion as the main drive to teach this subject.
IMDIS – A Teaching Tool for Air Pollution Dispersion Modeling begins with a background section that enables readers to quickly understand the modeling subject. Next, the book offers sections on air dispersion model highlights and model evaluation, including:
The IMDIS (Interactive Multisource Dispersion) companion software, a graphical menu-driven computer program, is provided with the corresponding open free code. Independent modules are given for meteorological data, dispersion coefficients and sources. The book includes a detailed Operating Manual containing the program structure, the user interface guide and the fundamentals and examples of modeling calculations. Readers can work with these examples to perform their own calculations.
