Description: Four fluorescent particle tracer experiments were conducted during the July 1979 ASCOT experiment in the Anderson Creek Valley of northern California. The purpose of the experiment was to examine the transport and elongation of a plume traveling in the Anderson Creek nocturnal drainage flow and investigate the interaction of the Anderson Creek and Putah Creek flow fields. Sequential samples of tracer material at three downwind locations in Anderson Creek gave effective transport velocities of 1 to 2 m/s and showed an approximately linear relationship between plume elongation and travel distance. Integrated samples taken in both the Anderson Creek and Putah Creek air sheds indicated considerable interaction between the two flow fields.
