Contrasting methods for validating ADMS using the Indianapolis dataset
This paper shows results of validation of the Atmospheric Dispersion Modelling System (ADMS) against the Indianapolis dataset, comparing arcwise maxima and analysing the results using the BOOT statistical package. There is good agreement between the quality 3 daytime observed and predicted concentrations. At night-time, calculated concentrations depend critically on the value of the surface roughness and minimum Monin-Obukhov length.
