||Dry removal of air pollutants from fossil fuel plants is considered from both a modeling and measurement viewpoint. Literature on dry deposition rates is summarized and the processes involved in dry deposition are discussed. The dry deposition of SO2, O3, NOx, and NO, as well as total sulfur and lead particles are considered. A prototype field data acquisition system was developed, assembled, and tested. Deposition velocities were computed for each field test. The sulfur dioxide profiles gave reasonable estimates of the dry deposition values, comparable to those in the literature. They varied from 0.10 to 2.38 cm/sec for the test runs. Values for the O3 deposition velocities were very small. The results for NO varied over a wide range, with the number of profiles measured in the test runs insufficient for reaching a definitive conclusion.
