The paper briefly describes the field tracer studies that were conducted in support of EPA's Complex Terrain Model Development project. A more detailed description is given of the last field study, conducted from the Tracy Power Plant near Reno, Nevada. During 14 experiment periods, 128 hours of dual-tracer samples were collected at up to 100 locations. These concentration measurements were supported by conventional meteorological information as well as information from lidars and monostatic and doppler acoustic sounders. Finally, the paper describes some typical but complex flow patterns that occurred during stable conditions in the irregular terrain of the study area.
