Abstract
A description is provided of design considerations for a forthcoming cooperative field measurement study to evaluate optical remote sensing technology for potential use in directly measuring and/or inferring industrial air toxics emissions. The general layout of these experiements (tracer releases from simulated volume sources) also lends itself to development of dispersion data that can be used to test and improve upon existing volume source models. Accordingly, point sampling arrays will be deployed downwind of the tracer sources in addition to the remote sensing instruments. Sponsors of the cooperative field study include the Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards, Emissions Measurement Branch, and the Office of Research and Development, Air and Energy Engineering Research Laboratory of the US EPA, and the American Petroleum Institute. The field measurements are scheduled to take place between December 5 and December 23, 1994 at an open field site near Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
