Abstract:

This paper is of interest to those involved in regulation and analysis of aircraft related air pollution problems. USAF efforts to measure and model airport pollution are summarized. Efforts include 1 a joint EPA study at Williams AFB, AZ which involves both modeling and measurement, 2 photographic studies to track plume rise, 3 theoretical model studies to analyze airport pollution. The atuhor concludes that the Williams study, soon to be completed, will greatly aid in determining the accuracy of airport air pollution dispersion models, that air quality modeling studies have shown that state-of-the-art Air Force engines cannot be cost effectively modified to reduce pollution except possibly in the hydrocarbon area and that, at present, unpredictable thermal plume rise of aircraft exhaust renders model ineffective at locations close 1 km to the source.
