(1) Pasquill-Gifford stability class (A-G) provides a measure of the atmosphere's ability to disperse
     airborne contaminants (Class A = good dispersion, Class G = poor dispersion).


Note: The 200-ft data may at times differ considerably from conditions at ground level,
such as early mornings with clear skies when a strong temperature inversion is present.
