A literature review is presented in a discussion of the relevance of meteorological factors on the resuspension of plutonium from contaminated land surfaces. The physical processes of resuspension based on soil erosion work are described. Some of the models developed to simulate the resuspension of materials for predicting airborne concentrations are reviewed. The significance of some of the parameters used in the different models is also discussed. The interplay of meteorological factors measured, discussed, or implied in the literature reviewed as related to the resuspension process is discussed in the final section.
