In this paper it will be demonstrated that conventional measures used to characterize contaminant concentration reduction are impractical and inadequate to describe the important case of a contaminant cloud. A new measure, the expectedmass-fraction function, is developed and shown to have desirable experimental and theoretical features. Some contaminant plume data is used to illustrate the application of this new measure.
