The report presents the results of an extensive field testing program to develop emission factors for certain common sources of fugitive dust. A description of the measurement techniques and summaries of calculated test results are presented. The basic measurements consisted of isokinetic dust exposure profiles with specially designed sampling equipment, dust concentrations with conventional high-volume samplers, particle size classification with high-volume cascade impactors, depostition profiles and dust transport by saltation. For each source type, emissions are related to meteorological and source parameters, including properties of the emitting surface and characteristics of the vehicle or implement which causes the emission. This information is used to derive correction factors which appropriately adjust basic emission factors to reflect regional differences in climate and surface properties.
