Abstract

Nomograms are developed for the purpose of determining Xu/Q values corresponding to dose isopleths describing areas of required evacuation. Plotting data for down wind and crosswind distances as a function of stability class and release elevation enable the drawing of the isopleth on a transparent grid which is placed over the map of the area to direct the needed evacuation.
