Technical interfaces modelling forum: Outcomes from the workshop

It has been felt for some time that conventional traffic models - as currently formulated - are not able to provide the accuracy and precise type of data that AQ models require and can undermine the air quality evidence base.

With this in mind, the Transport and Air Quality Modelling Forum was organised for a practitioner-level discussion between Air Quality (AQ) and Transport Modellers (TM) to seek to standardise and advance current practice. The aim was to produce practitioner-led recommendations that can be adopted as standard practice across the modelling communities.
