Atmospheric Dispersion Forum: The ingress of pollutants into buildings (& the effectiveness of sheltering)

PHE - CRCE, 17 September 2013

On Tuesday 17th September the ADMLC held a forum on the ingress of pollutants into buildings and the effectiveness of sheltering at the Centre for Radiation, Chemical and Environmental Hazards, Chilton, Oxfordshire. In the broadest sense the objective of the day was to bring together members of the Committee (who represent both industrial and regulatory organisations) and the dispersion modelling community to disseminate ideas and exchange views on the topic of building ingress and sheltering effectiveness. However the aim was more specifically to highlight aspects for improvement in the modelling of the ingress of pollutants into buildings and furthermore, provide possible solutions.

Atmospheric Dispersion Forum: Source Term Estimation and Event Reconstruction

HPA - CRCE, 5 May 2011

On Thursday 5th May the ADMLC held a forum on Source Term Estimation and Event Reconstruction at the Centre for Radiation, Chemical and Environmental Hazards, Chilton, Oxfordshire. The objective of the day was to bring together members of the Committee (who represent both industrial and regulatory organisations) and the dispersion modelling community to disseminate ideas and exchange views on the topic of inverse modelling. Particular emphasis was placed on the practical application of inverse modelling techniques.

Atmospheric Dispersion Forum

HPA - CRCE, 28 September 2009

On Monday 28th September the ADMLC held a forum on atmospheric dispersion modelling at the Centre for Radiation, Chemical and Environmental Hazards, Chilton, Oxfordshire. The objective of the day was to bring together members of the Committee (who represent both industrial and regulatory organisations) and representatives of UK academia to disseminate ideas and exchange views. Particular emphasis was placed on the identification of gaps in knowledge and understanding in the field of atmospheric dispersion and where future effort should be focussed.

Workshop on Reliability of Atmospheric Dispersion Models

NRPB, 22-23 October 2001

The ADMLC organised a meeting on the reliability of atmospheric dispersion models with particular emphasis on the aspects related to the licensing process for nuclear installations in the UK. The meeting was intended to address two questions:

  • what do regulators want from atmospheric dispersion models?
  • how reliable are models for those needs?

The following papers were presented.
