Air toxins continues to be a massive environmental factor regardless of decades of research and masses legislative keep watch over. In rec~nt instances, pollutants on a world scale has develop into of specific challenge. The progressively altering con centration of hint gases within the international troposphere because of man's job is becomming an issue of great main issue. No scientist could dare to pre dict intimately the implications of this sluggish swap as a result of its massive complexity related to social and monetary elements and close to numerous chemical and phjsical cycles in our biosphere. during this chain of techniques, the shipping of pollutants is a crucial issue, yet just a issue. as a result, i want to stress that the mOdelling of atmospheric shipping is turning into progressively more an job which inserts into better frameworks and will now not be exercised as a unmarried step, which bridges the distance among emissions and coverage measures. this can be additionally mirrored within the themes and papers which have been awarded at this convention. the themes have been: - emission invetories for and resource remedy in pollution dispersion versions; - modelling of unintentional releases; - nearby and international scale dispersion mOdelling; together with boundary layer-free troposphere trade methods and subgrid scale parameter isations; - version verification and coverage implications; - new advancements in dispersion modelling and concept. fifty six papers have been awarded in those sections. whereas many posters have been dis stubborn in a different session.

BUILTJES 1. That is something I would also like to know. S. -experts at several occasions, but I could not find hard evidence uptill now myself. 2. I agree that annual average NO x models tend to have a simple NOx-chemistry uptill now. However, the EMEP NOx-chemistry although simple in my opinion contains enough realism to be able to make that statement. W. KLUG 1. Dr. Builtjes discusses in his paper the possibility of discovering errors in the emission data by comparing model results with observations.
Appropriate model development is, of course, urgently requiredj however it is unfortunate that that effort greatly outweighs work on the fundamental fluid mechanics of the relevant physical processes. The self-generated velocity field produced by the horizontal density variation is an additional transport mechanism to that provided by the ambient flow. This, predominantly deterministic, buoyancy-generated flow pro duces a cloud with an increased horizontal and reduced vertical extent compared with a similar release with no density difference.
S. ; sulfur species emitted from the Sudbury point source in Canada; sulfur species emitted from other sources in Canada. For the purposes of the labelling exercise, the model processes will be divided up into two categories. The first category will contain all those processes in which the labelled species are treated separately. e. the horizontal and vertical mixing by stratiform and cumuliform c1oud. Here the anticipated problem is that, for any given grid ce11, the sum bf the changes of the labelled species in one time-step may not equa 1 the correspondi ng change in the total speci es in the same time-step.
