Problem with emission location

Post by Fabio.Dioguardi » April 5th, 2019, 9:38 am

Dear community,

I've noticed that the emission location displayed with "concplot" is always a bit different from where it is meant to be.
See attached output for example. The emission location in my case should be Eyjafjallajokull volcano. I've used the official coordinates you can find here: http://volcano.si.edu/volcano.cfm?vn=372020.
You can notice how the emission location is not the correct one. Originally I thought it has something to do with the chosen projection, but I've tried all the options allows by cdump but nothing changed.
The cdump code I used for this output is:
${MDL}/exec/concplot -i${OUT}/cdump -o${OUT}/tot_conc.ps -j${MDL}/graphics/arlmap -f1 -b0 -t$ztop -e4 -d2 -r0 -c4 -k1 -m3 -s0 -x1.0 -y1.0 -z100 -ukg -a0 -v1.0+0.01+0.0001+0.000001+0.00000001+0.0000000001 -: -: -: -: -:
The CONTROL file of the simulation is also attached.

Thanks
Regards
Fabio

How far off is it? The graphic wasn't attached. Have you tried plotting with Google Earth instead?

Strange, I am sure I attached it.
I am trying again. It's not very far, still it's not negligible...

Thanks
Fabio

Wrong latitude of 63.333 in your figure. Correct one is 63.633.

The CONTROL file and the plot label both have 63.333. It looks about right on the plot.
