Numerical Simulation of Air Concentration and Deposition of Particulate Metals Emitted from a Copper Smelter and a Coal Fired Power Plant During the 2000 Field Experiments on Characterization of Anthropogenic Plumes
In winter and summer of 2000 field experiments were conducted to investigate the physical and chemical evolution of two different plume sources, one is a copper smelter in Quebec and the other is a coal-fired power plant in Ontario. The field experimental data was used to support a modelling study of the transport and deposition of particulate metals from these industrial sources. The purpose of this study is to investigate the particle size dependent concentration and deposition patterns of current emissions of particulate metals and to estimate the proportion subject to long range transport.
