For evaluating atmospheric pollution, the method of depicting contour of waste gas isoconcentrations is generally adopted. However, such phenomena as impeded visibility and scenic degradation due to the formation of “Steam Plumes” associated with the condensation of water vapor contained in waste gases cannot be indicated by this method. Therefore, computer simulation has been employed to visually express the conditions accompanying the formation of “Steam Plumes”.
