Report for the second meeting on Nordic dispersion / Trajectory model intercomparison with the ETEX-1 full-scale experiment NKS/EKO-4 intercomparison/validation exercise held at FMI, Helsinki, 4th and 5th December 1996
Ulf Tveten (edt.)
On the 4th and 5th December 1996 a meeting was held at the Finnish Meteorological Institute in
Helsinki, where calculations of the atmospheric transportation and dispersion of the ETEX-1 release
carried out by a number of institutions in the Nordic countries were presented.
In addition, recent modeling developments and current development plans were presented. Several
institutions also demonstrated animated computer displays of the results.
The meeting was the second Nordic meeting of this kind, and the rate of development since the first
meeting, less than one and a half year ago, is impressive. Meetings such as these are seen as an important
supplement to the other, international ETEX-meetings, as the discussions in the Nordic meetings
naturally are more focused on problems related to the particular models adopted for use by the
institutions in the Nordic countries.
