Grid concentration calculation

Post by antonio.cervone »

How does HYPLIT compute concentrations on the output grid?
Does it use some "interpolation kernel" to attribute the particle mass to the grid cells?

The basic equations to calculate concentrations are provided in the tutorial.

Currently, we do not have an averaging kernel function applied.
However, some work is being done in our research group to experiment the averaging kernel option.
