How to run hysplit on linux without going through GUI

Post by whdustn21 »

Hi
I would like to track air mass from several points.
I think that It takes long times to run model through GUI because I have to input a lot of data manually.
Therefore, I downloaded pre-compiled Linux version of hysplit.
To realize these, I have some questions.
First of all, I'm wondering if where I can find main run file. I can find only CONTROL file in /working/directory. I would like to run model without opening GUI (hysplit.tcl).
Second, How can I run hysplit model with one or more CONTROL file automatically? I want the model to run automatically by changing the date or location. This is why I downloaded the Linux version.

I couldn't find the details in the manual provided. I want to ask for help from experienced user.
I would be very happy to share your knowledge.
Thank you for your help in advance.

You can run HYSPLIT with LINUX scripting. Section 2.4 of the HYSPILT tutorial talks about this => https://www.ready.noaa.gov/documents/Tu ... batch.html

There are script examples for many tutorial sections that you can take and customize for your applications.
The script for trajectory frequency analysis has a part changing dates =>
