ADMLC has been investigating and reporting on atmospheric dispersion modelling methods for over 25 years. This website introduces its work and provides access to its publications.
Membership of ADMLC is wide ranging and includes representatives from UK government organisations, private industry and consultancies (see About Us).
The Committee is currently looking to fund new work, details of which can be found on the Work page of this website.
The Committee is interested in suggestions for new work from non ADMLC members who can contact ADMLC using the email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Atmospheric Dispersion Modelling Liaison Committee have published three reports over the last three years:
- ADMLC-R8 (April 2016) – A review of the limitations and uncertainties of modelling pollutant dispersion from non-point sources
- ADMLC-R9 (June 2016) – Presenting Uncertain Information in Radiological Emergencies
- ADMLC-R10 (January 2017) – High Level Review of the Sensitivity of Dispersion Model Predictions to Individual Source Term Parameters
For further details relating to these reports, and for details of other ADMLC publications, please visit the Publications page.
ADMLC is currently funding one project: a review of approaches to dispersion modelling of odour emissions and intercomparison of models and odour nuisance assessment criteria.
ADMLC is also endorsing a project to review the 2005 dispersion modelling guidelines for air quality assessments (led by Dr Simon Scott).
Note that the organisations represented on the Committee pay an annual subscription which is used to fund areas of work agreed by the Committee, and to support in part its secretariat, provided by Public Health England. Details of the projects the Committee would like to fund are published under the Work page of this website.
The Committee is also interested in suggestions for new work from non ADMLC members who can contact ADMLC using the email address email@example.com.
