SAMS-Global - System for the Calculation of Air Pollutant Concentrations
SAMS-Global is a software system for the simulation of the dispersion of air pollutants during and after an accidental release at stationary (fixed installations) or mobile (for example trans-portation) sources. SAMS-Global calculates the airborne pollutant concentration in a area up to approx. 30 km x 30 km and shows as result isolines of the concentration using a Google™ Earth plug in. Therefore for SAMS-Global an internet access is mandatory. The coupling of SAMS-Global to Google Earth allows a world wide use of SAMS-Global.
During a run SAMS-Global calculates in each case every 3 minutes
- Concentration distribution at the actual time and the
- expected concentration distribution in the future
SAMS-Global basic version
SAMS-Global contains of the following modules:
 Topography and land use data are not included for applications outside of Germany and can be supplemented by us optionally. This is not the subject of the present offer. Without topography and land use data a flat terrain with a homogeneous land cover is assumed for the dispersion calculation.
At the moment the following extention modules are available:
- Extrapolation of measured meteorological data (10 minutes average of wind speed, wind velocity, turbulence and atmosperic stability) at one or several meteorological stations.
For SAMS-Global no special hardware requirements are necessary. Suitable processors are e.g. Intel® Core i5 or better. Screen size should not be less than 19 inches. Internet access is mandatory. SAMS-Global is running with operation system WINDOWS 2000, XP, Vista or 7.
