Chemical Plume Mapping
A chemical plume is like smoke from a fire. Some chemicals if released in the atmosphere have the potential to travel many miles in a concentration that could harm the population in it's path. The chemical plume software training will teach the student how to use the computer programs CAMEO, MARPLOT and ALOHA to predict the direction of the plume, the health effects on the population and the distance the plume could travel before dissipating based on area specific information. This knowledge can be a valuable aid to a company, workers, and the community to preplan for possible emergencies or offer support during a chemical release emergency.
