Hysplit setup without using GUI

Post by Souri_Atm » March 20th, 2015, 1:13 pm

Hello,
Since I want to run the model for a long time period using multiprocessors, I really need to setup hysplit on a clustered-machine which lacks monitor!
I've already compiled the model, but my big issue is that I don''t know what executable files I should run to get the results (NARR input, Houston city, from 2000 to 2014, 3days backward trajectories).
Is there any way to see what files TCL calls when I am using GUI in Windows version?
Should I use the testing folder only?
Thank you in advance,

Something that helped me was the hysplit tutorial. If you go to a given tutorial example (lets pick this one for simplicity, and click the little penguinthen you download a shell script that will run hysplit. Minor modifications may be necessary depending on the install location. I installed HYSPLIT4 to my home directory, and placed the tutorial files in $HOME/Tutorial/captex, thus the shell scripts work more or less out of the box. The shell scripts are great for one-off runs.

Thanks to both of you.
I eventually managed to use MATLAB and modify CONTROL file for a loop of different hours, days, months and years and subsequently execute hyts_std by using:

Code: Select all

unix('./hyts_std');
It took 4 days for 15 year 3day backward trajectory strated from 50 in-situ observations in Houston by using NARR .
