organisation BWPLUS (Förderprojekt "Lebensgrundlage Umwelt und ihre
Sicherung" Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe) promoted in Germany an
intercomparison of methods for the prediction of the air pollutant
concentrations in a specific street canyon using usually available input data (the
“Podbi-Exercise”). TRAPOS joint that initiative to bring the intercomparison on
the European level.
Twenty-four modellers from twenty-one institutions used a range of models to predict pollutant concentrations in a street canyon in Hannover, Germany. In each case, the modellers employed their normal operational model. The aim of the exercise was to obtain an indication of the magnitude of the variation in the procedures used and results obtained, and on how these variations may be reduced.
The results were presented during the 7th International Conference on Harmonisation within Atmospheric Dispersion Modelling for Regulatory Purposes, in Belgirate, May 28-31, 2001 and the Deutsch-Östereich-Schweizerische Meteorologentagung in Vienna, September 18-21, 2001.
