A wind-tunnel study of the transport and dispersion of sulfur dioxide from the Clinch River Power Plant in Virginia was performed for periods of neutral atmospheric conditions corresponding to two 1-hour periods for which field data were available. A 7-km x 21-km area of the quite rugged complex terrain surrounding the power plant was modeled at a scale of 1:1920 using a terraced construction. Exaggerated stack diameters were used in modeling the buoyant emissions from the plant's two stacks.
