The North Atlantic Treaty association (NATO) validated the "Committee at the demanding situations of recent Society" (CCMS) on the November 1969 assembly of the North Atlantic Council. The CCMS used to be charged with constructing significant environmen­ tal and social courses that supplement different foreign professional­ grams, and with displaying management, first, in resolution of exist­ ing difficulties and, moment, in improvement of long-range ambitions for environmental security within the NATO sphere of impact and in different nations to boot. a primary Pilot examine on pollution was once initiated through the CCMS at its inaugural assembly in December 1969. the USA (Environmental safety corporation) has been the pilot state with the Federal Republic of Germany (Federal Minis­ try out of the internal) and Turkey (Scientific and Technical Rese­ arch Council) as co-pilot countries. The Pilot research on pollution used to be an motion software de­ signed to illustrate and inspire the usage of latest wisdom for the improvement of air caliber administration courses. It entailed the demonstration of a structures method of air quali­ ty administration. Case stories were performed in Ankara, Turkey; Frankfurt, Federal Republic of Germany; St. Louis, united states; Oslo, Norway; and South Holland quarter, The Netherlands (NATO/CCMS record No. 6, Appendices A- E).

A strategy plan must not be established only on the basis of the present situation. Future emissions must be projected, taking into consideration the realistic development of industrialization, population and traffic patterns, as well as future land use. Changes in land use may not only affect emission patterns but may also have an influence on local wind fields and on the intensity of transport of fresh air into a polluted area. Diffusion models can be used to predict future ambient air quality.

The following kinds of meteorological observations may be useful in an AQMS: Two general approaches to the problem of determining the regional wind field have been taken. First, a single representative site may be selected, the assumption being made that winds at other sites are highly correlated with the reference wind. It is desirable in such cases to mount an anemometer on a television tower, if there is one at a suitable location, for use as a reference. The second approach is to use a network of anemometers, supplementing existing stations where necessary.

Thus, emission forecasting is a vital mangement tool and has an integral role in the planning and evaluation activities of control agencies. A good forecasting system utilizes the most current emissions inventory data and assures that the most current data are always utilized for predictive purposes. Dispersion models are being developed to provide mathematical relationships between air pollutant emissions and ambient air quality. These models can be used to relate the contributions from different source categories and configurations to ambient air concentrations.
