Abstract:

A summary of accomplishments is given of both an experimental and analytical nature in the following specific studies 1 Airflow in simulated temperate and tropical forest canopy. 2 Methods of modeling diffusion tests ahead of time to design most efficient and economical field experiments. 3 Use of controlled models of field tests to extend empirical data on CB transport and diffusion. 4 Extend wind tunnel investigation to thermally stratified boundary layers and broader ranges of surface roughness. 5 Investigation of longitudinal dispersion through both shear flow and turbulence. 6 Extend the Lagrangian similarity hypothesis considering a more realistic probability function. 7 Model Dugway Proving Ground and study mean wind patterns near the ground when flow aloft is oriented SW-SE.
