Abstract: An integrated approach was used for a study of air toxics emissions at a municipal solid waste (MSW) landfill (LF) consisting of field sampling, emission estimation, atmospheric dispersion modeling, and health risk assessment for major sources and a number of different compounds. The study was required by the state regulatory agency to satisfy operating permit conditions. The technical approach and results are summarized from Califano and Barboza, 1991.
