UK Pollution climate modelling - AQ01510

Description
TAQ01510

UK Pollution Climate Modelling


Description

This contract provides technical support in assessing the impact of current policies and policy options on the UK air pollution climate. This is delivered through performing a range of site specific and mapping assessments using GIS to evaluate current and future air quality for a range of pollutants. In addition, there will be a requirement to provide ad-hoc policy assistance as required. In order to deliver these services DEFRA proposes a number of enhancements to the present UK Empirical Air Quality Model.
