Backward Trajectory for PSCF analysis

Post by benoafryan »

Hi, right now i'm doing a research in which i have to do a PSCF analysis. There are several things i haven't learnt yet but i knew at least the first thing to do is to get the backward trajectory data.

So far i have been able to get backward trajectory data using web based HYSPLIT and PC version. But i can only get one trajectory at one time. The problem is, for PSCF, i need to get 3 days hourly backward trajectories for a period of 3 months. Is there a way to get the trajectories all at once? or do i have to do it one by one for every hour each day? thanks

You can download HYSPLIT, the meteorology data, and through the HYSPLIT GUI, run a month at a time. Please see the online tutorial at https://www.ready.noaa.gov/HYSPLIT_Tutorials.php. Section 6.1 describes the "run daily menu", which you could use. The prior trajectory sections should also give you useful information.
