Abstract: The complexity of air quality modelling systems, air quality monitoring data make ad-hoc systems for model evaluation important aids to the modelling community. Among those the ENSEMBLE system developed by the EC-Joint Research Center and the AMET software developed by the US-EPA are two examples of state of the art tools to support model evaluation. The two systems are described here mostly from the point of view of the support to air quality model users or developers rather than the technological point of view. While ENSEMBLE is a web based platform for model evaluation that allows the collection, share and treatment of model results as well as monitoring data, AMET is a stand alone tool that works directly on single model data. The complemetarity of the two approaches makes the two systems optimal for operational, diagnostic and probabilistic evoluations. ENSEMBLE and AMET have been extended in occasion of the AQMEII two-continent exercise (Galmarini and Rao 2011, this issue, Rao et al., 2011) and the new developments are described in this paper, together with those foreseen for the future..
