The Multilayer Model (MLM) has been used for many years to infer dry deposition fluxes from measured trace species concentrations and standard . Dynamics of the plume containing nanometric-sized particles ejected into the atmospheric air following laser-induced breakdown on the exit surface of a CaF2 optical window. An atmospheric monitoring network was operated throughout the South Coast Air Basin in the greater Los Angeles area during the year The primary objective of this study was to measure the spatial and temporal concentration distributions of atmospheric gas phase and particulate phase acids and bases in support of the California Air Resources Board's dry Cited by: dominated by dry deposition or in the case of high-elevation systems, although the use of passive samplers can extend the number of sites monitored (Schmitt et al., ). Deposition velocity values used in calculations are often uncertain Erisman et al. (), Lovett (), Lovett and Lindberg (), Wesely and Hicks ( Cited by:

surface with its ambient concentrations, i.e., a species’ flux is a product of its Vd and its concentration; and Vd values are commonly estimated using a dry deposition scheme/parameteri-zation (Wesely and Hicks, ). Developing a dry deposition scheme for Hg that can be used for regional/global Hg models. A deposition velocity of 1 cm/sec is representative of dry depo- sition of S02 (whose dry deposition rate is higher than that of most other pollutants) while a deposition velocity of cm/sec is represen- tative of wet deposition of sulfates for rainfall of somewhat more than 10 mm/hr (see e.g. McMahon, Denison and Fleming, ). v Annual average PM IO mass concentrations within the South Coast Air Basin ranged from g m-3 along the coast to p.g m at Rubidoux, the farthest inland monitoring site. Five major aerosol components (carbonaceous material, N03", S04', NHt and soil-related material) accounted for greater than 80% of the annual average PM 10 mass concentration at all on . For example, the resistance to gas uptake through stomaca of plant leaves can be approximated according to atmospheric stability categories. Recommendations. Until reliable methods suitable for directly monitoring dry deposition are developed, use of monitored concentrations may be the only alternative that is practical yet sufficiently accurate.
