The European Commission has published the proceedings of the ETEX symposium on "Long-range atmospheric transport, model verification and emergency response", held in Vienna from 13 to 16 May 1997.

ETEX, the European Tracer Experiment, was conducted jointly by the Joint Research Centre (Environment Institute), the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the World Meteorology Organization (WMO). Started in 1992, it aimed to produce more reliable data to validate atmospheric transport models. Many industrial accidents can lead to the release of large quantities of harmful material into the atmosphere which can have consequences at distances of hundreds and even thousands of kilometres.

The partners in ETEX conducted a long-range atmospheric tracer experiment, with the aims of testing the capability of institutes responsible for emergency response to produce forecasts in real-time, evaluating the validity of their forecasts and assembling a database which allows the evaluation of long-range atmospheric dispersion models in general.

The proceedings of the symposium include some 56 presentations giving a summary of the state-of-the-art of forecasting pollutant dispersion in case of a major accidental release into the atmosphere.
