This manual is to be used by instructors or teachers who are conducting classes on how to evaluate ('read') visible emissions to the atmosphere from air pollution sources. It includes everything the instructor needs when used with the student's manual. Topics covered include course and lesson objectives; lesson plans; quizzes; instructions on operation of the 'smoke' generator for black and white smoke; instructions on how to conduct the training course; and methods for evaluation of student performance. Sources of other needed items (films; slides; Ringelmann charts, etc.) are given.
"September 1978." Final. "EPA-450/3-78-105."
This manual is to be used by students who are learning how to evaluate ('read') visible emissions to the atmosphere from air pollution sources. Both black, grey, and white plumes are covered. The manual discusses sources of air pollution and describes visible emissions to be expected and the reasons why such may occur. A brief review of meteorological phenomena affecting stack plume behavior is given. Practices and procedures to be used in evaluating visible emissions of both the black/grey and other color nature are described in detail. The Ringelmann chart and its use are discussed. Equipment for generating visible emissions to be observed in training observers is described in detail.
