Gaussian models are routinely used to simulate air quality throughout the world. They exist in several forms, from a relatively simple equation, such as the straight-line stationary Gaussian plume, to other more complex formulations, such as Gaussian segmented plume and Gaussian puffs.
Several mathematical elaborations have allowed Gaussian models to simulate special scenarios and conditions. A review chapter (Yamartino, 2010) from the book Air Quality Modeling - Theories, Methodologies, Computational Methods, and Available Databases and Software, Vol IV (Zannetti, Ed. 2010) is included as pdf file. This chapter presents a description of some of these special applications.
