    A simple formula for calculating dispersion from a
    continuous finite line source, placed at right angles to the
    mean wind direction, is derived on the basis of statistical
    theory. Comparison is made with the virtual source concept
    usually used and this is shown to be correct only in the limit
    where the virtual time lag Tv is small compared to the timescale
    of the turbulence t1
