An Atmospheric Dispersion and Environmental Prediction Technique in model form was developed and validated. The model was developed as a computerized aid to enable rapid objective analysis and calculation of atmospheric trajectories and streamlines on the mesoscale. Several observational weighting techniques were investigated to determine a capability to reconstruct an imposed wind field pattern from uniform and nonuniform measurements in the wind field. From this, a new technique was developed for application to wind interpolation which represented an improvement over the Thiessen polygon method. The developed model provides an adequate interpolated representation of wind fields and atmospheric trajectories in real or near-real time for interpretation of atmospheric pollution and hazard problems. The model can be programmed on small programable calculators with storage capability.
