Re: Diameter (µm) Density (g/cc) and Shape

Dear alicec, Thank you very much for your help. I will look at these papers and get back to you later. I have another two questions now. I use NCEP/NCAR Global Reanalysis Data to run HYSPLIT. Question 1: Do I have to set ‘starting time (year, month, day, hour)’ as the UTC time in HYSPLT, regardless ...

Diameter (µm) Density (g/cc) and Shape

Dear all, I am using HYSPLIT to model insect dispersal including dry deposition. Insects are not a perfect sphere. I am not sure how to set ‘Diameter (µm)’, and ‘Shape’. I guess that ‘Diameter (µm)’ refers to the diameter of the cross section (a circle) of a particle. If so, would I be able to use t...

Re: Time Step and Concentration Calculation

Dear alicec, Thank you very much for your help. As you suggested, it works. I would be able to get the exactly same number of deposited particles between the output file (the number of deposited particles) and the MESSAGE file (the number of deposited particles = total released particles - the numbe...

Re: Time Step and Concentration Calculation

Dear alicec,

I am very sorry that I attached a wrong CONTROL file for the six source location simulation. Please find the attached correct one.

Your help would be much appreciated. Thanks.


Kind Regards,

Ming

Re: Time Step and Concentration Calculation

Dear alicec, Thank you very much for your reply. I have run two simulations today again, and I set the sampling domain: Span (80.0, 100.00) and Spacing (0.25*0.25). It should be large enough to sample the deposited particles. Simulation 1: one source location. Simulation 2: six source locations (the...

Re: Time Step and Concentration Calculation

Dear alicec, Thank you very much for your help. ' HYSPLIT takes a small shortcut and uses the location of the computational particle to calculate the grid area rather than the center of the concentration grid square. So the larger grid sizes may be off by a few particles if the particles are concent...

Re: Time Step and Concentration Calculation

Thanks for your help, alicec. So deposition velocity is actually not gravitational velocity? From what I understand, the deposition velocity is a kind of velocity that is used to calculate the deposition flux. The value of deposition velocity depends on the types of particles or gases. That is why i...

Re: Time Step and Concentration Calculation

HYSPLIT takes a small shortcut and uses the location of the computational particle to calculate the grid area rather than the center of the concentration grid square. So the larger grid sizes may be off by a few particles if the particles are concentrated near an edge. Please double check your numbe...
