The Chernobyl accident, although a tragedy in human terms, provided a valuable opportunity to examine the ability to model the dispersion and deposition of pollutants released into the atmosphere as they are transported over long distances by the wind. The four projects discussed in this report involve: - the analysis of Italian radiological data provided by the REM data bank; - the estimation of source terms from radiological measurements; - long range atmospheric transport models for use in an emergency response context, and - atmospheric dispersion in complex terrain (i.e., terrain with large topographical irregularities).
