Phase delays at high frequencies are observed in body waves that travel in the Alaska slab, along its strike at km depth. The delays, between Hz energy and the direct Hz arrival, are s for P waves and s for S waves. Such dispersion suggests a waveguide structure that parallels the slub, perhaps near its top.

UntilENSI used the program ADPIC for dispersion calculations, which achieved its last upgrade in ADPIC always conformed to the state of the art in science and technology and was internationally recognised.

To be able to satisfy quality requirements in the future, the continuous development of a dispersion modelling system is essential. The acronym, NAME, originally stood for the Nuclear Accident ModEl.

The Met Office has revised and upgraded the model over the years and it is now used as a general purpose dispersion model. The current version is known as the NAME III (Numerical Atmospheric dispersion Modeling.
