This test report summarizes the findings from Jack Rabbit I (JRI) conducted at WDTC, US Army Dugway Proving Ground (DPG), Utah, from April 2010 through May 2010. The JRI test was designed to improve the understanding of rapid, large-scale releases of pressurized, liquefied toxic inhalation hazard (TIH) gases. The project involved outdoor release trials of 1- and 2-ton quantities of chorine and anhydrous ammonia in 10 successful trials. Detection instrumentation was deployed out to a range of 500 meters, with some point detection MiniRAE instruments recording data at multiple heights, including 1-m, 3-m, and 6-m. Additionally, data was recorded from several stand-off instruments and video stations to capture the behavior of the cloud as it dispersed downwind. During the tests, meteorological, FTIR and UV optical, paper detection, thermal couple, and bubble sampling data were collected.
