Atmospheric transport of hydrogen sulfide from proposed geothermal power plant (unit 20) : predictions by physical modeling in a wind tunnel
MetadataShow full item record
The 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 ...
