3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

Mesyst code is used for the simulation of 3D tracer dispersion in atmosphere.
Three packages are part of this system:
Cre_topo: prepares the terrain data for the Mesyst.
Noabl: code calculates three- dimensional free divergence windfields over complex terrain.  
Pas: Computing of tracer concentrations and depositions on a given domain.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

NOABL - Line Over Relaxation + Special adaptation of GAUSS procedure.
PAS - Monte Carlo Method.

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

Computations: Mesh size: variable from some meters to some hundreds meters Mesh number: variable depending on availables real data (some hundreds points on each directions).

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

The running times are variable. The efficiencies are good for NOABL for few processors (up to 90%) and decreasing with the number of processors. For PAS, the efficiencies are excellents due to Monte Carlo method. Running times are variable depending on the accuracy required.

7. UNUSUAL FEATURES OF THE PROGRAM

This model can take into account the spatial and temporal variation of wind, variable topography.
