Refinery, Lake Charles, Louisiana:
We conducted an air dispersion modeling study of sulfur dioxide (SO2)
emissions from the Conoco refinery in Lake Charles during a process
upset that occurred in January 2003. The SO2 emission rate was approximately five tons per hour.
Shown below is an isopleth map depicting the maximum one-hour average
SO2 concentrations that resulted from the incident. The
underlying dispersion calculations were generated with CALPUFF. A
high quality PDF version of the map
is available here.
