ARGOS/RIMPUFF has the advantage that the source term can vary in time and that the spatial domain can have varying land-use and terrain heights. We get outputs for each time-step, rather than an overall solution and NWP data can be used, so the model can more accurately reflect the changes in meteorological conditions that occur – which is absolutely necessary”
