Major accidents related to chemical substances create significant impacts on society (e.g. Fernie (BC), Lac-Mégantic (QC), Sunrise (ON)). In prevention, risk studies are carried out that lead to decisions such as plant location, process design and land-use planning. However, the approach produces variable results. Danielle aims to develop a model to reduce the uncertainties of the input parameters of atmospheric dispersion simulations when assessing risks.
