    Abstract

    Human awareness of several odorants at varying concentrations were monitored within different environments. The effects of distractions, unfamiliarity with the test environment, and previous training were found to be significant. Efforts were directed at determining not only the odorant levels that can be detected, but also the levels that will be detected.
