|Title:||Smoke Plume Trajectory from In Situ Burning of Crude Oil in Alaska ‹ Updated Simulation Results|
|Published:||July 21, 2011|
|Abstract:||The purpose of this report is to update calculations, originally performed in 1993, that predict the downwind extent of smoke particulate from hypothetical in situ burns of spilled crude oil in Alaska. The reason for the update is that the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) have changed since 1993. These standards formed the basis for establishing ,safe distancesŠ for separating potential burning sites from populated areas in Alaska.|
