The workbook provides a logical approach to the selection of appropriate screening techniques for estimating ambient concentrations due to various toxic/hazardous pollutant releases. Methods used in the workbook apply to situations where a release can be fairly well defined, a condition typically associated with non-accidental toxic releases. The format of the workbook is built around a series of scenarios considered typical and representative of the means by which toxic chemicals become airborne. For each scenario, the workbook helps the user identify applicable release scenarios and determine release and emission rates and then guides the user through all the steps required for making atmospheric dispersion estimates. An example application of the emission and associated dispersion estimation methods for each release scenario is provided.
