Field-measured data of sulfur dioxide, SO2, and sulfur hexafluoride, SF6, concentrations in a plume are compared with theoretical predictions based on a plume rise model. The comparison shows that the theoretical model does correctly predict the concentration of pollutants in a plume. The comparison of the concentrations of SO2 and SF6, which was an inert gas released to the stacks as a tracer, shows that in the experimental range of 20 miles, the depletion of SO2 is not an important factor in estimating the rate of dilution.
