The European tracer experiment ETEX: A real-time long range atmospheric dispersion model exercise in different weather conditions
Two long range tracer experiments were conducted in Europe in Autumn 1994, releasing for 12 h an inert, non-depositing tracer at Rennes, Brittany, France. The 168 sampling ground stations were run by the National Meteorological Services and the whole experiment was sponsored by the European Community (EC), the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). Twenty four institutions took part in the real-time forecasting of the cloud evolution with 28 long range dispersion models. They simulated surface concentration evolution at the locations where the tracer was sampled.
