Abstract: As part of an assessment into the consequences of a potential accident at the National Medical Cyclotron Camperdown NSW. Australia two meteorological stations were installed to monitor the winds temperatures and atmospheric dispersion conditions. The data will be used to assess environmental impacts of the Cyclotron's operation. In spite of the relatively poor performance of the stations the wind data indicated significant effects of local buildings and the general urban surface roughness features. The prevailing winds during the study were from the north-north-west at night and south-south-west or north-east sea breezes during the day. Atmospheric stability/dispersion categories were typical of an urban heat island location.
