The EPA Meteorological Wind Tunnel was used to examine the flow field in and around models of open-top field plant growth chambers used to assess the effects of pollutant gases on plant growth. Baffles designed to reduce the ingress of ambient air into the chamber through the open top were tested, the mean flow and turbulence in the simulated boundary layer with and without the chambers were compared, and the effects of surrounding chambers on the concentration field were measured.
