Abstract

This is a users manual for VSMOKE, a computer porgram for predicting the smoke and dry weather visibility impact of a singel prescvribed fire at several downwind locations. VSMOKE is a FORTRAN 77 program that depends on the input in file VSMOKE.IPT to generate output in file compatible with those used by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. VSMOKE is uniquely talored as a plume model for a low to mderate intensity ground fire as an emissions source.
