The transport model performance risks and causes of problems which we seek to address are as follows.

The linked-together transport model will have a worse performance than evident from the calibration of any individual module because: Transport model tuning and validation is aimed at dealing with the error accumulation issues referred to above in connection with: Tasks are:
  1. Analysis of the effects of accumulation of transport model errors
  2. Validation of the implemented transport model
  3. Sensitivity tests of the implemented transport model
  4. Tuning/correcting the transport model
