Air Pollution Modeling and Its Application XVII by B. Ainslie, D. G. Steyn (auth.), Carlos Borrego, Ann-Lise

By B. Ainslie, D. G. Steyn (auth.), Carlos Borrego, Ann-Lise Norman (eds.)

In 1969 the North Atlantic Treaty enterprise (NATO) demonstrated the Committee on demanding situations of recent Society (CCMS). the topic of air pol- tion used to be from the beginning, one of many precedence difficulties lower than examine in the fra- paintings of varied pilot reports undertaken through this committee. The association of a periodic convention facing pollution modeling and its software has turn into one of many major actions in the pilot learn when it comes to pollution. the 1st 5 foreign meetings have been geared up by way of the U.S. because the pilot kingdom; the second one 5 by means of the Federal Republic of Germany; the 3rd 5 by way of Belgium; the subsequent 4 by means of The Netherlands; and the subsequent 5 through Denmark; and with this one, the final 3 by means of Portugal. th This quantity comprises the papers and posters provided on the 27 NATO/CCMS overseas Technical assembly on pollution Modeling and Its software held in Banff, Canada, 24-29 October 2004. the main themes at this ITM integrated: function of Atmospheric versions in pollution coverage and Abatement options; built-in nearby Modeling; results of weather swap on Air caliber; Aerosols as Atmospheric Contaminants; New advancements; and version review and Verification. 104 contributors from North and South the United States, Europe, Africa and Asia attended th the 27 ITM. The convention was once together equipped through the college of Aveiro, Portugal (Pilot nation) and by way of The college of Calgary, Canada (Host Country). a complete of seventy four oral and 22 poster papers have been offered through the conference.
