Currently within the licensing procedure of nuclear facilities in Germany, atmospheric dispersion calculations are still predominantly based on the simple Gaussian plume approach. Advanced model systems consisting of a diagnostic flow model together with a Lagrangian particle simulation model, as e.g. described in a guideline of the German Association of Engineers (VDI 3945 part 3)1, have less restrictions with respect to terrain effects, source configuration and nonstationary conditions.
