Introduction – HYSPLIT predictions driven by the nested RSM and the coarser grid NCEP global Medium Range Forecast (MRF) model will be compared for the March 12, 1996 RSMC exercise Gentilly-1, Canada nuclear power plant in the province of Quebec. RSMC-Canada and RSMC-Australia also participated in the exercise. Finally, these results will be compared with the non-hydrostatic Regional Atmospheric Modeling System (RAMS) predictions that are typically used at ARL for research applications.
