Abstract:During the second stage of this research, a technique was developed to obtain in-situ measurements of PM mass emissions for the dust plumes that are generated from unique military activities. The method was then tested in the field to measure dust emissions from artillery back blast and tracked vehicle movement in desert areas. Dust plumes were also characterized by developing contour maps that describe the plumes' horizontal and vertical dimensions, light transmittance, and temporal variability of size specific PM mass concentrations.
