Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Dust plumes in the atmosphere, generated by cotton field preparation planting and harvesting operations were measured remotely via aerosol lidar. Dust plume size, shape and movement are reported The in-plume aerosol size distributions were measured with cascade impactor aerosol samplers. Particle size distributions and mass emissions are estimated from the combined lidar and sampler measurements. Plume dynamics and local wind condition interactions are quantified and visualizations from the lidar measurements are shown.
