Greetings!

SporeSim is physical-mathematical validated layer model to simulate dispers=
al of pollen and spores within a crop.
It may calulete the escape-fraction as the percentage of partic=3Bes leavin=
g the crop.
We used it to calculate the escape fraction of a biocontrol fungus for a ri=
sk analysis.
Then we incorporated a low sedimentation velocity Vs. If we change the para=
meter of Vs in Vs =3D 0.02 m/sec
SporeSim can quantify dispersal orf pollen grains and spores with =E0 high =
sedimentation velocity such as conidiopspores of Potato Late Bliight.

It might be worthwhile to describe a version of SporeSim adapted to simulat=
e pollen dispersal. However=2C I donot have a job thus such a small researc=
h should be funded externally by e.g. Kellog's Cornflakes to publish a pape=
r on dispersal of pollen in corn. You may find a comprehensive description =
of Sporesim in=20

Please feel free to e-mail meindertdejong from hotmail.com if you see any opport=
unity for a scientific collaboration.
Thanks for the attention!
