New Work

The Committee has identified a number of topics where it sees significant value in further work, and hopes to fund new work on these topics in the future. These topics include:

  • application of models to the design of monitoring networks
  • a review of model evaluation procedures
  • residual secondary atmospheric sources
  • deposition modelling (including dry deposition modelling of reactive sources)
  • techniques for sensitivity and uncertainty analysis
  • infiltration and indoor dispersion

The latter three bullet points were identified as a result of an expert elicitation exercise, whereby ADMLC members identified a list of primary areas of interest and gaps in the field of atmospheric dispersion modelling. The findings of this exercise were presented at the 2019 “Harmo” Conference (https://harmo19.vito.be/). The presentation and paper are linked here.

ADMLC will advertise further funded work in due course – please keep an eye on this page for updates.

The Committee is interested in suggestions for new work from non ADMLC members who can contact ADMLC using the email address admlc@phe.gov.uk

How ADMLC Contracts Out Work

A proposal for work is submitted to the ADMLC website. All interested parties should submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to admlc@phe.gov.uk. All submitted EOI’s should be brief, no more than two pages of A4, give an outline of the work to be carried out, timescales for delivery and give an estimate of the cost involved. ADMLC will then review each EOI and select those it wishes to take forward. There will then follow a period when the EOI is iterated between the contractor and ADMLC to produce a more detailed description of the project requirements.

Further information can be obtained from ADMLC by emailing: admlc@phe.gov.uk.
