Simulation of the 2nd ETEX release in the proximity of the source
The complexity of the weather situation after the end of the second ETEX experiment resulted in generally poor performances of the long-range dispersion models employed in the real-time simulation of the release. On the other hand, much more detailed meteorological information than those available to the real-time modellers were assembled in the course of the experiment and stored in a data bank. This has allowed the possibility of investigating with a much finer mesh interval the mesoscale flow in a few hundreds kilometres range from the source, using a model that could also take into account the terrain topography.
