Papers presented at the "First workshop on Harmonisation..."

The first workshop on "Harmonisation within Atmospheric Dispersion Modelling for Regulatory Purposes" was held in May 1992 in Roskilde, Denmark.

Its title was "Objectives for Next Generation of Practical Short-Range Atmospheric Dispersion Models".

This document contains the list of contents from the proceedings.

Some of the papers are only available in the form of abstracts (as indicated in the list).

The proceedings are now out of print, but certain sections of the proceedings are available via the Word Wide Web. Copies of other papers can be obtained on request to Helge RÝrdam Olesen, NERI.
