Use own meteorological and gas concentration data

Post by AndyLu » March 15th, 2019, 8:38 am

Hey guys,

I've just tried out an online test run of an arbitrary date in my region of interest (Oliva, Comunitat Valenciana, Spain) which gave rise to two questions:
  • Can I also use my own meteorological data and gas concentration (pollutant) data as input?
    (if not in the online version, maybe in the downloadable version?)
  • Following up on 1., is it also feasible to model a time period of 3 entire months instead of only 1 day at once?
Thank you very much in advance,
regards
Andreas

Yes to all. Please see the Tutorial about the meteorology, which needs to be in a certain format.

I assume you mean the gas emission rate, rather than concentration.

Thanks for the link, I'm going to immerse myself more into the tutorials.
I was just wondering, because there was no obvious option neither in the online dispersion model nor in the offline linux software for including own data, maybe it's more hidden then.

With respect to the gas emission rate, I have concentration data at the odorant source with a temporal resolution of 1 minute. If a emission rate is needed as input, I could convert my concentration data measured once per minute into a emission rate.
