Modelling Workshop Materials

Scotland’s draft Low Emissions Strategy proposes a new two level approach to air quality modelling for Scotland:

Level 1 involves developing a National Modelling Framework, together with a standard air quality assessment methodology for developments and infrastructure. Level 2 involves developing a Low Emission Framework (LEZ) framework model, together with interactive tools to assess local areas.

A workshop was held by the Scottish Urban Air Quality Steering Group and Sniffer on 9 December 2014; providing an opportunity for stakeholders to:

• Understand the history of the current approach to monitoring and modelling traffic in the Netherlands, including links to air quality models and the Dutch legislative framework.

• Understand and discuss the current approach and application of air quality monitoring and modelling in Scotland.

• Discuss the route map to developing a Scottish approach to a two level national air quality modelling and monitoring framework.

Please see the Modelling Workshop Flyer for more details.
