The Canadian Meteorological Centre (CMC) has been designated by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) as a Regional Specialized Meteorological Centre (RSMC) for the provision of products and guidance on atmospheric transport-dispersion-deposition of pollutants to member countries during Environmental Emergencies. The Canadian Meteorological Centre is the national meteorological centre for Canada. CMC uses a Global Spectral Model (T119, 21 levels) for medium range forecast, and a variable resolution Regional Finite Element Model (50 km horizontal resolution over North America, 23 levels) for short range forecast. In order to fulfil this international commitment as well as other national responsibilities for environmental emergency response, CMC has implemented in its operations a system for quick response to requests of products and guidance on the large scale movement of pollutants in the atmosphere.
