Aircraft observations of stack and cooling tower plumes taken at a big power plant are compared with corresponding outputs of one-dimensional plume model ALINA, yielding certain improvements to the entrainment parametrization and dynamics of the model. Some observations of plume-plume and plume-environment interactions are reported.
