EPA Office of Research and Development scientists were involved in conducting the first spray releases of genetically engineered ice nucleation deficient Pseudomonas species in California during April and May of 1987. Their role was to verify proper functioning of the sampling equipment and provide recommendations for evaluating fate and transport of recombinant organisms for future field releases. The report provides a complete documentation of the meteorological conditions which existed during the spray events and on subsequent sampling days. The report also provides documentation of the bacteriological field data collected, including dispersal patterns of the aerosol in horizontal and vertical directions; and it provides a discussion of the effectiveness of the various sampling devices used in enumeration of the recombinant bacteria.
