Paper Abstract

This paper describes an automated FT-IR open path monitoring system that bas been installed at Tinker Air Force Base to monitor volatile organic hydrocarbon (VOC) emissions from the Industrial Waste Treatment Plant. Coordinated FT-IR and gas sampling measurements were performed to provide a basis for the development of plume dispersion calculations to predict emission source strengths and fenceline concentrations. Methods developed to perform this analysis are described.
