Ringaskiddy annual incinerator plume animations

30km x 30km15km x 15km

Animations are created by modelling the incinerator plume every hour during a period of time, using historical weather data from a weather station local to the incinerator. The plume is modelled in the same way as the live plume plot. Here is a description of how it works.

Unlike the live plume plot, animations are based on historical weather data from Roches Point, with cloud cover data from Cork Airport. Source: Met Éireann.

All plume animations are available on youtube.
