Measurements and Modeling

The Task Force on Measurements and Modeling was established by the Executive Body in 2000 to offer a forum to the Parties, the EMEP centres and other international organizations to discuss and evaluate measurements and modelling and to further develop working methods and tools. 
The main focus of the Task Force is to support the EMEP Steering Body and its Bureau by reviewing and assessing the scientific and operational activities of EMEP related to monitoring and modelling; evaluating their contribution and support to the effective implementation and further development of the Protocols; and drawing up specific proposals for the EMEP workplan.
The Task Force also provides for closer collaboration of Parties to the Convention, the EMEP centres, other bodies under the Convention, other international bodies, in particular with the World Meteorological Organization  (WMO), and the scientific community in strengthening scientific communication and cooperation in air pollution monitoring and modelling. The revised mandate for the Task Force can be found in EB decision 2019/8.
The Task Force is led by Poland. WMO co-chairs its meetings.
