Interaction Of The Zone Of Falling Scavengers With The Polluted Atmosphere
A simple numerical model is outlined for the description of particulate transport in the "wake" of falling scavengers toward the ground. The results show that for a homogeneous atmosphere the induced air downdraft can surpass ten percent of the scavenger terminal velocity, if sufficient time is available for developing the air circulation. A significant effect can be expected if the settling scavenger velocity surpasses several m/s. For three different types of scavengers a "displacement coefficient" was determined in order to demonstrate the effect of sideward motion of non-spherical scavengers. © 1993 StudiaGeo s.r.o.
