Quality assurance of air pollution models
Complex numerical models, widely used to assist decision-makers in environmental studies, have not always been submitted to proper analysis of their performance. Therefore, decisions with political and economical consequences could be based on model predictions of unknown quality. With EUROTRAC-2 it has been recognised that model calculations of known quality and adequate for their intended use is an essential element for project success. This article is intended to emphasise the importance of the subject and to present scientific achievements with regard to Model Quality Assurance attained within the SATURN framework. One section deals with the fundamentals of Model Quality Assurance, and two others address the evaluation of urban and local scale models, respectively.
