MDS - Model Documentation System

The Model Documentation System aims to provide guidance to any model user in the selection of the most appropriate air quality model for his application. Inclusion of a air quality model in the system is by no means associated with any form of endorsement for using the particular model: it helps select the most appropriate by using the specifications submitted by the modellers.

The database was developed at the Aristotle University Thessaloniki, Greece, by Prof. Nicolas Moussiopoulos, Head Director of the Laboratory of Heat Transfer and Environmental Engineering, based on ideas originally proposed by Helge Olesen.
