Abstract
A series of nine trials, three with neat methyl salicylate and six with salicylate thickened to a zero shear viscosity of six poise, were conducted on prairie terrain. Explosive dissemination was used to provide liquid drops, the size distribution of which appears to obey modern deterministic chaos theory. The vapour recovery rate agrees favourably with the predictions of an exisiting DRES model. Persistence on prairie terrain was found to be roughly directly proportional to drop size.
