The Krasnoyarsk plume plotter shows a prediction of the current amount of air pollution (at ground level) caused by emissions from the City Power Plant-2, Krasnoyarsk.
Plume Plotter predicts this fallout using AERMOD, which is one of the most widely used modelling systems for air pollution. It uses the latest local weather conditions and upper air data, which are obtained in real time. Plume Plotter does not use real-time information about the power plant's emissions. Instead, it assumes that it is operating continuously (8760 hours per year) and emitting pollutants at a constant rate. The emission rates assumed are the average actual emission rates, obtained from local contacts.
The other parameters (e.g. emission velocity and temperature) used were obtained from local contacts.
Plume Plotter's model takes account of the real terrain in the vicinity of the power plant, but ignores the buildings, which should not affect the plume because of the high stack.
