CALPUFF updated to version 7.3.1

calpuff update oct 19   CALPUFF Version 7.3.1 has been released. This version incorporates an agricultural spraying source type. In addition, several bugs were identified and fixed in Version 7.2.1 including issues with the use of multiple sub-hourly variable emissions files and processing missing layers in AERMET generated .PFL files. This model is out of the list of recommended models of the US EPA but it is the most appropriate under low wind/calm conditions that influence odour impact and with complex terrains. 

  The CALPUFF Modelling System is a non-steady-state puff dispersion model that simulates the effects of time- and space-varying meteorological conditions on pollution transport, transformation, and removal. In this CALPUFF has been updated to version 7.3.1. CALPUFF is composed of several post-processors. In this new version the post-processors CALPOST, CALSUM and POSTUTIL, have also been updated to allow processing of the new spray source type.

   CALWRF has been updated from v2.0.2 to v2.0.3 to correct a bug related to precipitation events which cross between multiple WRFOUT files.
