This paper presents the results achieved to date from a multi-agency study focused on improving our capability to predict accurately the impact which OB/OD activities have on the health of humans and ecosystems. The primary objectives of the study are: (1) to develop and validate air pollution dispersions models which predict how the emissions from OB/OD activities will disperse in the environment; and (2) to develop a mobile meteorological measurement system which can characterize the atmospheric conditions from ground level to 3000 m above ground level.
