Atmospheric Transport and Dispersion of Hazardous Materials Research and Development

Atmospheric releases of hazardous materials, either accidental or intentional, pose a viable threat to both United States citizens, as well as troops abroad and at home.  To counter this threat, RAL is actively supporting research and the development of novel techniques and systems which can be used to more accurately simulate the atmospheric state and evolution of the released material in both time and space, for planning, real-time response, and forensic purposes.
