Abstract

Air pollution models may be applied for the optimization of control strategies and for short-term predictions of smog episodes. Especially at the urban scale, simulation models have already been successfully used to address questions related to the atmospheric environment, although a full evaluation of such models is still lacking. Recent activities facilitate defining how to quantify the uncertainties of air pollution models. A basic requirement in this respect is the availability of detailed experimental datasets for model validation. The European Topic Centre on Air Quality which was recently designated to assist the European Environment Agency appears to be a suitable frame for future concerted activities towards the evaluation of air po
