EPA, university, and private researchers conducted a study of Denver's urban plume during the month of November 1973. The objective of the study was to characterize the pollutants that cause the appearance of the visible colored haze, the so called 'Brown Cloud', which frequently occurs over Denver during the fall and winter months. Gaseous and aerosol pollutants, and meteorological parameters were measured periodically under selected conditions. In March 1975, a symposium was held to present and discuss the results of this study. This report, Volume 2, contains important research papers given at the symposium. The papers cover airborne instrument aircraft characterization, optical properties of the plume, and airmass movements in the Denver region. (Color illustrations reproduced in black and white.)
