Theory[edit]

The equation given in the theory section makes no sense. The x^2 in the top and bottom of the exponential cancel. I don't know what it should be, but I don't think its what this article says it is.</math>

That's better, but the dimensions aren't right. The argument of the exponent should be dimensionless. This one has dimensions (1/velocity^2). Should there be d^2 on the top? (that would make sense) -- GWO
the issue was proper definition of c as a dimensionless variable measured in radians. this is now fixed in the text Covalent 00:31, 18 March 2006 (UTC)
It seems important to me that the theory section describes the most-used models, at least in the U.S. The CALINE3 and CALINE4 model documents on EPA's SCRAM website provides more detail. Faithandreason 14:08, 24 April 2006 (UTC)Faithandreason
