Digital Optical Method (DOM) was developed during the first stage of this research to quantify plume opacity using digital photography. DOM was tested in the field during both daytime and nighttime conditions to evaluate its applicability. Results from those field tests demonstrated that DOM has the potential to serve as the alternative to the USEPA reference method, Method 9, because this new method is more objective and economical when compared to Method 9, and provides archival image for possible legal action.phase function over the sky hemisphere (azimuth angel alt;(agt; from 0 to 2n or 0Ad to 360Ad, and zenith angle from 0 to n/2, or 0Ad to 90Ad). e = oAd sun Figure 2.8 Position ...
