ABSTRACT

Operational Perspective on Atmospheric Dispersion Modeling   [open pdf - 2MB]

Topics in this presentation on Atmospheric Dispersion Modeling include: "Operational Systems Provide Timely Information to Protect the Public and the Environment Via End-to-End Capabilities"; "Higher-Resolution Data and Data Assimilation Methods are Key to Reducing Meteorological Uncertainty"; "Higher-Resolution Data and New Data Assimilation Methods are Key to Reducing Uncertainty"; "Methods are Needed that Integrate Physical Processes Across a Range of Scales (Micro-to-MesoscaleGap)"; "Release Source Term is Often the Greatest Unknown During a Real-World Response"; "User Community is Asking Questions Requiring Higher Fidelity Integrated Models: IND [Improvised nuclear device] Example"; "Incorporation of Building Information Improves Estimates of Casualties and Protective Action Guidance for INDs"; "Health Effect and Detailed Population are Necessary for Realistic Casualty Projections"; "Degradation, Deposition, and Secondary Transport Information are Needed for Response and Recovery"; "Uncertainty Estimation Relies on a Wide Range of Methods and Sampling and Lacks Operational Robustness"; "Standard Operational Procedures Couple Modeling and Monitoring in a Cyclical Process to Reduce Uncertainty"; "Real-Time Field Data Acquisition and Processing Reduce the Delivery Time for Data-Model Products"; and "Interagency Briefing Products Were Tailored to Convey Actionable Information to Decision Makers".
