dc.description.abstractThe transport and dispersion of hydrogen sulfide plumes emanating from cooling towers located at three separate positions in the Geysers Geothermal Area were studied in the Colorado State University drainage flow and environmental wind tunnel facilities. The tests were performed utilizing 1:1920 scale models of the cooling towers and the terrain surrounding the Geysers Power Plant complex. Ground-level concentrations were measured along Big Sulphur Creek to study interaction of the cooling tower plumes with the natural drainage flow. Concentrations were also sampled at ground-level and vertically between the cooling towers and Anderson Springs at five different wind speeds and a predominantly west wind, under neutral conditions. Data obtained include velocity and temperature profiles, isopleths of ground-level concentration, vertical concentration distributions, and plume visualization photographs.
