Description: PB-Piedmont is a numerical model designed to simulate near-ground smoke movement at night under clear skies and near calm winds over irregular terrain characterized by ridge/valley elevation differences of the order of 50 m. Although the model was developed for monitoring smoke at night, the model is equally suitable for monitoring movement of agricultural odors and airborne organisms with flight speeds and/or terminal velocities that are small relative to air speeds. PB-Piedmont is designed to be run on a desktop computer by the non-technical land manager.
