METI-LIS (Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry – Low Rise Industrial Source Dispersion MODEL)

Overview

A user-friendly computer model developed originally by Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry for wide use not only by researchers and specialists but by manufacturers and citizens. METI-LIS version 2 developed with CRM initiative is now available in English also. This model puts special importance to expressing downdraft effect, which often affects dispersion from low emission sources, while it gives solutions of simple Gaussian plume and puff formula for elevated sources. In addition to a short-term estimation with fixed meteorological conditions, a long-term average estimation can be obtained with the model, when hourly meteorological datasets are prepared by users.
