In 1969 the North Atlantic Treaty association (NATO) validated the Committee on demanding situations of recent Society (CCMS). the topic of pollution was once from the beginning, one of many precedence difficulties less than examine in the framework of varied pilot stories undertaken by means of this committee. The association of a periodic convention facing pollution modelling and its program has turn into one of many major actions in the pilot examine when it comes to pollution. those foreign meetings have been successively prepared by means of the us (first five); Federal Republic of Germany (five); Belgium (five); The Netherlands (four) and Denmark (five). With this one Portugal takes over the obligation. This quantity includes the papers and poster abstracts provided on the NATO/CCMS foreign Technical assembly on pollution Modelling and Its software held in Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium, in the course of 15-19 October 2001. This ITM was once together prepared through the collage of Aveiro, Portugal (Pilot state) and through the Catholic college of Louvain, Belgium (host country). The ITM was once attended through seventy eight individuals representing 26 international locations from Western and japanese Europe, North and South the US, Asia, Australia and Africa. the most subject matters of this ITM have been : position of Atmospheric versions in pollution coverage and Abatement innovations; built-in nearby Modelling; international and Long-Range delivery; neighborhood pollution and weather; New advancements; and version overview and Verification.

For evaluation of photochemical ozone, the application of air quality models is often limited by the existence of large uncertainties in the input data. Consequently the accuracy of model predications is often less than that required to determine confidently the impact of proposed emissions or to develop ozone strategies. , 1984) simplified the chemical process of photochemical ozone formation using a set of generic reactions, which is called the Generic Reaction Set (GRS). He also developed the “AirtrakIntegrated Empirical Rate model (IER) method”.

It is not intended to dwell on the characterization and comparison of different models or modules. g. Russel and Dennis, 2000; Ebel, 2000; Dodge, 2000). Nevertheless, it is hoped that conclusions about changing models and alterations of the modelling process during the last one or two decades also reflect experiences of other modellers with other models and thus can be generalized to a certain degree.

43 MODELLING OF ATMOSPHERIC RADIOACTIVE AEROSOL DYNAMICS AND DEPOSITION Alexander Baklanov and Artashes Aloyan* 1. INTRODUCTION Radionuclides are released into the atmosphere in form of gases or aerosols with a broad range of particle sizes. Even significant for long-range transport particles vary in size in the range of However, most models of air pollution transport do not consider effects of nuclide particle size and the aerosol transformation. The physical and chemical form of a nuclide influences its behaviour in the atmosphere and may itself be subject to transformation during atmospheric transport.
