The EPA Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards is currently evaluating the performance of models in several categories. As part of that program, eight short-term long-range transport models have been tested with two data bases representing tracer releases. These releases involve transport and dispersion over essentially flat terrain. The Oklahoma data base (Ferber et al., 1981) includes two releases of a perfluorocarbon tracer from Norman, Oklahoma. The Savannah River Plant data base includes 15 experiments (data sets) from a continuous elevated release of krypton-85. The evaluation procedure used was based primarily on the American Meteorological Society (AMS) statistics (Fox, 1981). These results were supplemented by several graphical comparisons which were used to interpret the causes of model/data discrepancies.
