Abstract: This paper is a description of the program that has been operating in support of the Yucca Mountain site site characterization activities since 1985.The ambient air monitoring is designed to provide meteorological and air quality data for four basic purposes: atmospheric dispersion calculations, engineering design and extreme weather event characterization, local climate studies for environmental impact analyses, and air quality permits required for site characterization work. The data collection mode of the program is successfully proceeding along the intended course.
