The Large Power Plant Effluent Study (LAPPES) was initiated in Western Pennsylvania to evaluate the extent and effects of air pollution resulting from the largest complex of coal-burning generating stations in the United States. During 1967 and 1969 three series of LAPPES field experiments were conducted in an area surrounding the Keystone and Homer City Generating Stations; these experiments consisted of ground-based and airborne plume measurements supported by extensive meteorological observations. The topography and climatology of the generating station complex, the sulfur dioxide and meteorological monitoring equipment, and experimental procedures are described. Plant operational parameters and air quality and meteorological data collected during 1967 and 1969 are tabulated. (Author)
