ADMS-Urban: an air quality management system for traffic, domestic and industrial pollution
The new version of the Atmospheric Dispersion Modelling System for urban environments, ADMS-Urban, is based on the same up-to-date physics as the ADMS model, outlined briefly here in Section 2. The basic model has been the subject of extensive validation studies: as part of this series of European Harmonisation Workshops; sponsored by HMIP (Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Pollution, now part of the UK Environment Agency); and independently. ADMS-Urban combines the basic model, which includes a line and area source model, with a fully integrated street canyon model, a chemistry model for predicting nitrogen, sulphur and ozone, and a traffic emissions database. The basic model, ADMS, was developed by CERC and the UK Meteorological Office. Sponsors of the continuing model development include UK government agencies.
