Title: Air pollution models in environmental management and
Chairman: Ole Hertel
and Jes Fenger
Air pollution models are strong and necessary tools in environmental
management. The aim is to describe the methodology behind application
of mathematical models in various assessments of air pollution impacts.
The book provide guidelines for avoiding incomplete or even incorrect
answers when models are applied. How to select the right type of models
for a given purpose and ensure they work properly with appropriate input
data of the needed quality etc?
A draft of the book contents includes:
General principles of air pollution models, model types, atmospheric
scales, parameterisations, hind casting, now casting and forecasting.
