Abstract or Summary
  • Many agricultural fields are burned in the Willamette Valley of Oregon during the summer for economic reasons. A major air pollution problem results from these burnings. The purpose of this study was to develop relations between the maximum plume height and some of the independent variables affecting this plume height, such as, burn rate, wind velocity and atmospheric stability. By applying the proper relations found in this study, one could predict the maximum height a field burning plume would reach. The higher the plume rise, the lower the concentration of the plume effluents at ground level. If a relationship between the maximum plume height and the ground level concentration is known, for an accepted limit of ground concentration, the issuance of permission for the burning of a certain field could be given knowing the environmental variables. Three equations for different environmental conditions were developed through dimensional analysis. Their constants of proportionalities were obtained experimentally.
