Abstract : This report documents a microcomputer-based system for the real-time computation of toxic corridors associated with chemical releases. The program assists the user with interactive input of critical meteorological parameters and accesses user-specified data bases of information regarding toxic chemical attributes. Graphic displays show the analyst the resulting toxic corridor superimposed upon site-specific base maps. The program is documented for the user thorough help files. An archive mode provides a chronological history of all events, including the time and date of each calculation. The program is modular in design, allowing for modifications and upgrades in the future. (Author)
