This work is based on a model of emission-producing activities at the Hartsfield Atlanta International Airport and emissions from additional sources in the region surrounding the airport. A steady-state Gaussian plume dispersion model, developed previously, was used to determine pollutant concentrations at selected reception sites. The model of the Atlanta airport was assembled to evaluate the results of a field test of one of the strategies (engine shutdown during taxiing) performed there in late 1973. The results of that field test are reported elsewhere. A full discussion of the interpretation of the comparison between modeled and monitored pollutant concentrations during the field test, and the examination of alternative strategies noted here are contained in the final report of this project.
