Changing particle properties in HYSPLIT

Post by 22yhwang »

Hello HYSPLIT team,

I am working on a model where the particle size and density differs from air parcels. The particle size and density would be constant with respect to time and so I do not believe I would want to use the Linear Mass Conversion equations. How would I go about this change and is this something that is possible to do in the GUI?

Thank you and please let us know if you have any ideas on how to implement this change.

What version of HYSPLIT is this model? I am having trouble finding that menu that is on the first screen in the link you provided.
