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. (Author)
