Abstract: The air pollution modeling community is continuously growing and the activities and different approaches related to air quality studies and applications are diversifying more and more, facing all relevant issues and covering all spatial and temporal ranges of interest. Therefore, to identify all groups working in air pollution modeling, and to summarize all the theoretical and computational approaches to simulate the dispersion and transformation of pollutants in the atmosphere, is surely a challenge. The database provided here was built up following a two-step procedure. First, active groups in air pollution modeling have been identified examining recent specialized scientific literature and looking at participants to the main international conferences on air pollution modeling. The groups have then been contacted and invited to provide specific information using a web-based template. The template was designed with the aim to provide insight in the groups¿ main objectives, tools, skills and competences. A short version of the template is used in the printed book, while a longer one is prepared for the electronic version of the book, where submitted animations could be also found. The database contains the templates from 80 modeling groups coming from 28 countries. Of course, the list does not have any pretensions of being complete, however it provides a picture of the currently active air pollution modeling groups and of the modeling tools developed or used by them.
