National societies etc. dealing with dispersion modelling
You may add information on various user communities to the list below. If the user community has a particular focus, please mention it.
Communities focusing on one particular model should also be mentioned on a page referring to that model - see the page Individual models.
Recall that on the present Wiki warnings against pitfalls and common mistakes are of high interest. Try to convey such information.
- UK Atmospheric Dispersion Modelling Liaison Committee. The UK organization that has been investigating and reporting on atmospheric dispersion modelling methods for over 25 years.
- Atmospheric Dispersion - an e-mail discussion list. This is an e-mail list where people working in the field of atmospheric dispersion can post announcements and exchange experiences. It can be considered a supplement to the current Wiki. The list exists in the framework of Google Groups. From 2011 the list replaces a similar list, AtmosphericDispersion, which was hosted by the Dutch Surfnet organisation until the end of 2010. The list is managed by Helge R. Olesen (National Environmental Research Institute, Aarhus University, Denmark) who is chairman of the initiative on Harmonisation within Atmospheric Dispersion Modelling for Regulatory Purposes, www.harmo.org.
- The Open Directory of dispersion modelling web sites. Nearly 300 air quality modelling links, some of which are to modelling communities.
