The files in this dataset correspond to part of the model results presented by Langner et al., Atmospheric Environment, 32, 4325-4333, 1998. Concentrations at ten model levels and accumulated dry, wet and total (wet+dry) deposition of Cs137 at one hour intervals for the time period 1986-04-25 19 UTC to 1986-05-10 12 UTC are stored in NetCDF-format. The model results correspond to the simulation using precipitation from KNMI. The units are Bq m-3 and kBq m-2 respectively. Coordinate information is given in the NetCDF files. The NetCDF files also include surface pressure, surface geopotential and model calculated boundary layer heights at six hour intervals. Further details about the model simulations can be found in Langner et al. (1998).
