Abstract: In the fall of 1994 perfluorocarbon tracers were released in Monterfil, France. During 4 days the evolution of the tracer cloud, as measured by 168 ground stations in Europe, were compared with model simulations. In contrast with Chernobyl, predictions can now be made available almost immediately after an emergency is reported. The quality of and consensus between predictions is still immature. Data assimilation offers good prospects for improvement.
