ADMSSTAR - Model for the Analysis of Short-Term Accidental Releases
Entry ID: CERC_ADMSSTAR


Summary
Abstract: ADMS-STAR uses a Lagrangian puff methodology to model the fate of explosive or finite duration releases to atmosphere. ADMS-STAR can use temporally and spatially varying meteorological data from the WRF model, vertical profiles of meteorological data or simple surface data. ADMS-STAR can also account for the impact of complex terrain: hills, variable surface roughness; and marine effects.

ADMS-STAR calculates instantaneous air concentration and accumulated wet and dry deposition for radiological or chemical emissions. These can be compared against regulatory or other levels (e.g. EU maximum permitted levels in foodstuffs).

ADMS-STAR can be used either in situations where the source details are known or it can perform a back calculation and estimate the source strength based on air or soil sample data.

ADMS-STAR has a link to ESRI's ArcGIS (Geographical Information System) for entering source and receptor data and displaying contours of concentration and/or deposition overlaid on a map of the area where the incident occurred.
