How to find deposition constants for hazardous chemicals?

How to find deposition constants for hazardous chemicals?

Post by keithlambkin »


Myself and some colleagues are running a local copy of HYSPLIT under a LINUX environment and every works well.

I am trying to trying to build up a database of hazardous chemicals (>100) which in an emergency situation are preconfigured with HYSPLIT parametrisation (probably as a collection of control files) and ready for immediate use, (just needing location, time and emission rate to run).

I am however finding it very difficult in to source the HYSPLIT parametrisation (e.g. Wet and dry deposition parameters like: Surface Reactivity Ratio, Diffusivity Ratio, Effective Henry's Constant, Actual Henry's constant, In-cloud, Below-cloud etc.).

Is this information available within the HYSPLIT community?

Many Thanks

Unfortunately, we do not have such database. We have examples such as those provided in the following table:
