Atmes : Evaluation of long-range atmospheric transport models using environmental radioactivity data from the Chernobyl accidentFunded under: JRC-SERV 3C
A group of experts developed the outline for Atmes and specified the requirements of modellers for radiological and meteorological data. The Commission of the European Communities which had already been considering an equivalent study within the European Community, joined the IAEA/WMO initiative in 1987. The objectives of the study were: (i) to provide a source of useful guidance and advice to government authorities on the usefulness and capability of models; (ii) to indicate data requirements for models inputs and for off-site monitoring; (iii) to provide information to scientists in the context of improving models, by identifying model features which produce good results when compared to actual monitoring data.
