Seeking Information on How to Modify Chemistry Module Control File to Use Own Data

Post by coellom » April 17th, 2018, 3:19 pm

Hello Everyone,

I am an engineering student and am fairly new to HYSPLIT. I have successfully ran and used the online and PC downloaded versions of HYSPLIT. Now for an Air Quality Class project I am attempting to use the HYSPLIT Chemistry Module to model SO2 in "VOG" for the volcano Mount Kilauea in Hawaii.

I have not been able to find literature on how I am supposed to modify the control file and respective files to use my own meteorological and SO2 emission data. I wish to use the meteorological data for Hawaii found at [ftp://ftpprd.ncep.noaa.gov/pub/data/ncc ... plit/prod/] and to generate my own SO2 emission data.

I have programming experience and I think if I was able to see what the run_model batch file is doing I would be able to figure out how to modify the control and other files needed to run my own data.

Can someone give me some advice and/or point me in the right direction on how to modify the control and respective files in order to use my own data?

Thank you and take care ,
Merissa

Hello,

Here is a good reference you can start with:
https://journals.ametsoc.org/doi/full/1 ... 14-00150.1

You might want to contact Andre Pattantyus. He has done a fair amount of work on this topic.
