DISGAS (passive DISpersion of GASes and particles) is a Eulerian model for passive dispersion of diluted gas and fine dust particles. Turbulent diffusion is based on the K-theory, and the wind field can be evaluated assuming either a wind profile based on the similarity theory or using a terrain-following mass consistent wind model. The model can be used to forecast concentration of gas (or dust) over complex terrains. The input to the model are topography, wind observations from meteorological stations, atmospheric stability information and gas flow rates from a discrete number of point sources.
