This dataset includes the source code, scenario simulations, and input and output data used for the simulations of the near-field plume model with line-source geometry in stratification using the Texas A&M Oil Spill Calculator (TAMOC). The model simulations were used to investigate bubble plume behaviour generated from line-source geometry with an integral plume model in stratified ambient reservoirs. This was accomplished by adapting the double-plume integral model developed for point sources to a line plume. This model is based on buoyancy profiles and top-hat velocity and uses an Eulerian integral modeling approach which predicts the chemical, hydrodynamic, and thermodynamic bubble behavior with a discrete bubble model. This dataset supports the publication: Dissanayake Anusha, L., M. Rezvani, A. Socolofsky Scott, A. Bierlein Kevin, and C. Little John (2021). Bubble Plume Integral Model for Line-Source Diffusers in Ambient Stratification. Journal of Hydraulic Engineering, 147(5), 04021015. doi:10.1061/(asce)hy.1943-7900.0001885



The dataset contains the model simulations of the near-field plume model with line-source geometry in stratification using the Texas A&M Oil Spill Calculator (TAMOC); no field sampling was involved.
