We have applied the methodology combining Bayesian inference with Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) algorithms to the problem of the atmospheric contaminant source localization. The algorithms input data are the on-line arriving information about concentration of given substance registered by sensors' network. A fast-running Gaussian plume dispersion model is adopted as the forward model in the Bayesian inference approach to achieve rapid-response event reconstructions and to benchmark the proposed algorithms. We examined different version of the MCMC in effectiveness to estimate the probabilistic distributions of atmospheric release parameters by scanning 5-dimensional parameters' space. As the results we obtained the probability distributions of a source coordinates and dispersion coefficients which we compared with the values assumed in creation of the sensors' synthetic data. The annealing and burn-in procedures were implemented to assure a robust and efficient parameter-space scans. © 2012 Polish Info Processing Socit.
