By R.R. Scorer (Auth.)

Written by means of a uncommon overseas scientist, who has made basic contributions at the climatic courting among pollution and meteorology, the publication presents a compendium of real looking examples of pollution behaviour. After beginning with a common survey he is taking us via a research of diffusion mechanisms together with pollutants from business chimneys and street site visitors. pollution meteorology covers boundary layer scaling, pre-processing meteorological facts, air caliber administration, city meteorology, and atmospheric chemistry (oxides of nitrogen are principal to ozone chemistry) with debts of commonplace pollution episodes and a short dictionary of air pollutants.

  • Provides a compendium of lifelike examples of pollution behaviour
  • Includes a accomplished learn of diffusion mechanisms, together with toxins from business chimneys and highway traffic
  • Covers boundary layer scaling, pre-processing meteorological info, air caliber administration, city meteorology, pollution and atmospheric chemistry

2 Under a low inversion top the cross-section becomes a wide strip with its area proportional to the width y. Thus the area increases linearly when it grows only sideways and not upwards from a mixing layer of uniform depth. If the source is an area source like a town it will have a virtual source some distance upwind, as shown in the lower diagram. 6 The mixing layer seen at the South coast of England with large cumulus developing above the condensation level. (P. M. 1 Well defined haze top in the valleys of western Europe.

37 Chimneys: purpose and design 38 [Ch. 2 In the case of a power station it is often seen that such a plume rises up to the cloud base most of the time, even when the stack height is only 200 metres, and the cloud base is at about 800 metres. Consequently a buoyant enough plume will be carried to the top of the mixing layer and is well diluted before being diffused downwards. 9 BIFURCATION OF A BUOYANT PLUME The buoyancy of a plume causes a vortex pair cross section to be formed with visibly clear air being drawn up the centre line of the plume so that it becomes bifurcated.

Another problem with the steel prefabricated stacks is their lightness. This gives them a fairly high frequency and amplitude of oscillation if held fixed only by their foundations. They are liable to oscillate Sec. 6] Thermal rise and effective stack height 31 sideways in a strong wind, throwing off a vortex street. It was feared that the foundations would be made loose. To prevent a structural failure steel ropes were often attached to counteract the sideways forces in vortex shedding. If another similar stack stood close downwind it might be made to oscillate more violently, and cases have occurred in which one or both have been rendered unsafe.
