Field measurement of fugitive dust levels were made 250 to 500 meters downwind of mining activities and areas at four surface coal mines in the Northern Great Plains during three different climatic conditions. Ambient dust levels were also monitored. Wide ranges of temperature, wind speed, wind direction, precipitation, soil moisture, and mining activity levels are represented in the field data. Statistical data analyses were extensively employed to examine trends, test hypotheses and explore relationships.
