    The Risø National Laboratory, Roskilde, Denmark, atmospheric puff dispersion model is described. This three-dimensional model simulates the release of Gaussian pollutant puffs and predicts their concentration as they are diffused and advected downwind by a horizontally homogeneous, time-dependent wind. Atmospheric characteristics such as turbulence intensity, potential temperature gradient, buoyant heat flux and maximum mixing depth have been considered.
