Abstract : This paper discusses the problem of diffusion from an unsteady continuous point source in a turbulent atmosphere. The influence of vertical current, the deposition of the diffusing particles and the 'Net-catching Effect' (absorption by ground surface) are considered. The theoretical formulas for the evaluation of the concentration field are derived. Several sample computations are presented and it is shown that there is good agreement between the computed results and observed data. (Author)
