The 8th NAME User Workshop

Content of the workshop

The workshop will focus on recent developments and applications of NAME.

There will be presentations on NAME model developments, air quality, emergency response, volcanic, radiological and biological dispersion, as well as practical hands-on activities, discussion groups and opportunities for you to ask questions and get help with NAME on Jasmin, the NAME collaboration platform (MOSRS) and other general NAME issues.

The workshop will be in hybrid format this year, with in-person (Met Office, HQ) and online (Microsoft Teams) attendees.

Attendance, and lunch and refreshments for in-person attendees, are free of charge.
