14 Oct 2016ADMS User Group Meetings 9-10 Nov: Draft agendas now available

The draft agendas for this year's ADMS User Group Meetings are now available. The meetings are being held at The Holiday Inn Camden Lock Hotel in London on the 9th and 10th November. Places are limited, so please register before 31st October. Software users with valid support are entitled to one free place at the relevant User Group Meeting for a single user licence, two free places for a 2-5 user licence and two free places for research and teaching licences. For all other attendees the fee is £175 per person per event (excluding VAT).

29 Sep 2016Summer 2016 editions of CERC model newsletters now available

Catch up on model news including the latest modelling tips and helpdesk notes in the Summer 2016 editions of ADMS 5 News and ADMS-Urban and ADMS-Roads News which are now available to download.

20 Sep 2016ADMS-Urban & ADMS-Roads 4.0 SP1 update with EFT 7.0

A new version of Defra's Emissions Factors Toolkit (EFT), version 7.0, was released in July 2016. Details of the updates included in the latest release are summarised on pages 4 and 5 of the EFT User Guide.

ADMS-Urban and ADMS-Roads incorporate the EFT emission factors so that emission rates can be calculated from available traffic and speed data. CERC have compiled a model update that includes the EFT version 7.0 emissions factors, which is available to ADMS-Urban and ADMS-Roads users with current support contracts. Please visit the CERC User Area for a download link.

There will be a talk to summarise this model update at the ADMS-Urban and ADMS-Roads User Group Meeting in Camden, London, on the 10th of November.

7 Sep 20162016 ADMS User Group Meetings

This year’s ADMS User Group Meetings are being held at Holiday Inn Camden Lock, London on the 9th and 10th November and are a great opportunity to hear the latest model news and advice from CERC consultants and model developers, to hear talks by model users about their own applications of the software and to network with other model users. Each meeting will start with coffee and registration at 10am and finish at 4pm. A buffet lunch and refreshments are provided. A staffed ‘Helpdesk’ service will be available during all refreshment breaks. ADMS 5, ADMS-Roads, ADMS-Roads Extra, ADMS-Urban, ADMS-Urban Light and ADMS-Airport users with a valid support contract are entitled to one or more delegate places free of charge depending on the type of licence held. Registration will remain open until 31st October 2016 but places are limited, so book your place today!


25 Aug 2016ADMLC report on dispersion from agricultural sources published

A review of the limitations and uncertainties of modelling pollutant dispersion from non-point sources’ was published earlier this year. This report presents a detailed literature review, including a summary of agricultural and bioaerosol source parameter ranges particularly of interest to those modelling multiple releases from low-level sources in the vicinity of farm sheds. Results from four validation studies are presented, where ADMS and AERMOD have been configured to represent emissions using all available non-point source types. The study recommends that source buoyancy and momentum should be accounted for if these parameters are at least moderately different from ambient conditions; it also includes good practice guidance. This work was funded by the UK Atmospheric Dispersion Modelling Liaison Committee and was co-authored by CERC, Steve Smith (A S Modelling & Data Ltd.) and Akula Venkatram (University of California, CA, US).
