Description: An overview of the accomplishments of the DOE Atmospheric Studies in Complex Terrain (ASCOT) program during FY-1980 is presented. Fiscal Year 1980 was the second in a three to four year ASCOT study being conducted in The Geysers area of Northern California to achieve the following objectives: to augment the present knowledge of the physical mechanisms involved in the development, perpetuation, and breakup of nocturnal drainage flows; to develop an integrated measurement and modeling methodology to perform air quality impact assessment and control strategies for energy development in areas subject to drainage flows; and to provide the developed methodology with special applications to the H/sub 2/S emissions associated with The Geysers geothermal development. This year the focus of the work was on the major areas of reducing, analyzing and modeling data taken during the July 1979 field experiment within the Anderson Creek Valley at The Geysers and planning and executing a major field experiment in September 1980.
