       Some Thoughts on the Evaluation
            of Dispersion Models
 Model must match purpose
      A dispersion model deployed to provide information on a
       technological hazard to the general public will probably
       need to meet more exacting performance measures than
       one designed for the battlespace, for example
 Evaluation must be done with the application in
  mind
      A model applied to an urban environment must be
       evaluated in that environment, and
      Using the user’s criteria
      As well as the modeler’s
        Observational Test-beds for
           Urban Applications
 Need a comprehensive urban observing system to
  evaluate models
     E.g., a D.C. test-bed would be useful to evaluate all
      candidate models proposed for use in urban areas
     Costs of such a system could be shared by agencies with
      primary responsibility for mitigation of urban threats –
      e.g. NOAA & DOD
     Such an evaluation may identify the need for multiple
      models to acquire necessary information to respond to
      multiple threats
