Numerical Modeling of Zestafoni City Dust Dispersion in case of Western Wind

Aleksandre A. Surmava


Dispersion of dust emited in the atmospheric air of Zestafoni city is numerically modelled and studied in case of weakt background western winds. Dust spatial distribution patterns are obtained, and the influence of orography, horizontal and vertical turbulence and advective processes on dust distribution in the atmosphere is analyzed.
