A theoretical basis and numerical schemes are presented for simulating the dispersion of a plume of volatile aerosol. For special cases where analytical solutions are possible, excellent agreement is shown between analytical and numerical solutions. It is demonstrated that the error in the numerical simulation can be reduced to any desired level. Simulation results for volatile plume dispersion under realistic atmospheric conditions are also presented.
