ABSTRACT OVER the last 4 years the USDA Forest Service and the DOD Atmospheric Sciences Laboratory have continued the development of the AGDISP (AGricultural DISPersal) computer code that predicts the deposition of material released from helicopters or fixed-wing aircraft. The features of the code are reviewed and the predictive capability of the code is assessed by comparison with recent test data. Code applications and limitations are also discussed.
