The initial concept of nesting ADMS-Urban in the regional model CMAQ was developed by CERC and published as Stocker et al. (2012). Further development for nesting in the EMEP4UK model was carried out in collaboration with the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology and supported by the UK Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

The development of the automated ADMS-Urban RML system was carried out under a project for the Hong Kong Environmental Protection Department, in collaboration with researchers from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.

Details of verification studies using the ADMS-Urban RML system can be found on the Model validation pages.

User support

The ADMS-Urban RML system is supplied with an in-depth user guide (please refer to the User Guides page) that details all user inputs and outputs, and includes a number of step-by-step worked examples. The user guide also gives a technical description of the system.

An annual maintenance contract provides support for users; this includes:

  • maintenance model upgrades,
  • use of the helpdesk by e-mail, phone, fax or post,
