  • Review of atmospheric dispersion and deposition in fog or ‘haar’ events and its impact on human health (This document is not complete to the satisfaction of the Atmospheric Dispersion Modelling Liaison Committee as a result of the study being suspended due to the contractors’ company ceasing to exist. However the Committee recognise the value of the work performed to date and therefore have opted to publish the work in draft form. The Committee remain open to offers to complete this study.)
