Short summary
The impact of pollution sources on downwind sites can be quantified by Lagrangian dispersion models. We identified the representation of the mixing layer dynamics as a crucial factor for the vertical mixing of surface pollutants. Our application examples show that inaccuracies may introduce errors in the impact assessment on downwind sites. For vegetation fires, mixing by pyrogenic convection is under-represented. We find an overestimation of downwind smoke concentration of more than 60 %.
