Abstract

The objectives of ETEX were to conduct a long-range atmospheric tracer experiment; to test the capability of institutes responsible for emergency response to produce forecasts in real-time; to evaluate the validity of their forecasts and to assemble a database which allows the evaluation of long-range atmospheric dispersion models in general. The ETEX symposium on long-range atmospheric transport, model verification and emergency response was held in Vienna, 13-16 May 1997. The 56 presentations gave a summary of the state of the art of forecasting pollutant dispersion in case of a major accidental release to the atmosphere. The Proceedings of the Symposium summarizes the results of this successful project and gives conclusions and recommendations.
