Report from the Ad Hoc Group of Experts on the Long-range Transport and Dispersion Model Verification Data Base

 

For submission to the CAS Expert Panel, March 1999, Zurich

CAS Working Group on Environmental Pollution and Atmospheric Chemistry

  

February 22, 1999

  

Background The recent meeting of the World Meteorological Organization's (WMO) Commission for Atmospheric Sciences (CAS - XII) emphasized the importance of the coordinating role of WMO in emergency response activities and the increasing number of models to address the long-range transport of pollutants.  The Commission decided there was a need to create a data base of all known field experiments and the corresponding meteorological data in a common format that could then be used for model verification and development.  The USA and Australia agreed to assemble a small expert group to consider the tasks required to address this issue and report their results to the CAS Working Group on Environmental Pollution and Atmospheric Chemistry.
