EPA's airborne downlooking dye lidar was operated during the STATE field program in western Kentucky/Tennessee in the summer of 1978. In this paper, lidar estimates of height of the atmospheric mixing layer are shown and compared with in situ measurements. Lidar estimates of crosswind and vertical dimensions of TVA power plant plumes are compared with appropriate literature values and with in situ estimates from data compiled by other STATE investigators; wherever necessary, data are adjusted to ensure compatibility with respect to sampling time. In addition, lidar measurements of plume rise are compared with model calculations.
