Abstract
A simplified method for calculating ground contamination densities from aerial spray has been developed by relating the parameters of an empirical Pearson III distribution to spray and meteorological parameters, using a proven gravitational settling model. For calculations involving more than one spray release, a computer program is given which provides for omissions on up to ten parallel tracks with variable spacing and variation of release height between tracks.
