Model evaluation of the Austrian Gaussian plume model ON M 9440: comparison with the Kincaid dataset
The Austrian Gaussian plume model ON M 9440 is evaluated with the Kincaid dataset using the workshop model validation kit. Results are shown for different meteorological options. Mean model concentrations compare well with or overestimate measured data, depending on the choice of these options.
