Abstract
Modification of the Pasquill atmospheric diffusion equations for estimating viable microbial airborne cell concentrations downwind from a continuous point source is presented. A graphical method is given to estimate the ground level cell concentration given (1) microbial death rate, (2) mean wind speed, (3) atmospheric stability class, (4) downwind sample distance from the source, and (5) source height.
