The Rapidly Deployable Chemical Defense System (RDCDS) is a portable network designed to provide large venues with a detect-to-warn system for a wide range of chemical contaminants. This system was an outgrowth of a number of tracer studies that were conducted to better understand the flow of atmospheric contaminates within an urban environment. This presentation will provide background on the development of the integrated meteorological component of the RDCDS system (which includes both observational and modeling tools), and will describe a deployment that was conducted several years ago.
