The aim of this WG is to deliver recommendations on QA/QC methods to assess the quality of models used for planning purposes. The WG9 activities will focus on:
Assessing the sensitivity of the model responses to emission reductions when input data (emissions, meteorology…) or the model itself is changed, with a focus on short-term model responses.
Assessing the influence of various processes (e.g. meteorology, emissions, resolution…) in the observed differences
Providing recommendations on the combined use of models and observations for planning purposes
Evaluate consequences for e-reporting of planning data
Providing overall support to model users (SHERPA, air quality models…) in their planning activities (measures, emission and model scenarios)
