Abstract : The report explains briefly the technique used to calculate for certain Air Force bases allowable stack emissions within the limits of the Environmental Protection Agency's Air Quality Standards. Examples of such calculations for Cape Kennedy AFS, Kelly AFB, and Tinker AFB are given. Graphs of 'Emission Rate vs Downwind Distances' are furnished which allow downwind ground-concentrations of specific pollutants to be readily estimated for effective stack heights of 30, 50, and 70 feet.
