A second meeting of the DUKEMS User Group was held on 17 February 2021, with more than 25 participants representing the project team and number of atmospheric modellers across the UK modelling community. Professor Ranjeet Sokhi kindly agreed to chair this user group meeting. Following on from the successful first modelling user group meeting where the design and implementation of the UK Emission Modelling System was discussed, this session focused on providing a technical demonstration of the ‘data-labs’ behind the tool, and how to deal with uncertainty within the UK-EMS. Further feedback was gained from the group on which models and pollutants are currently used to calculate biogenic emissions, and then wider discussion on temporal resolution required within the UK-EMS. The next user group meeting is scheduled to take place in Autumn 2021.
