Setup WRF/ARW Simulation for HYSPLIT
The WRF/ARW mesoscale meteorological model has been configured to run and create a HYSPLIT-compatible meteorological file so that HYSPLIT can be run with high resolution meteorological data. Currently, the the system is designed to create and run with 3 domains (6 hour spin-up):
For boundary conditions, WRF uses the AWRF archive (27 km) for 1980 to the end of the last year and the NARR data from the Research Data Archive at NCAR/UCAR (http://rda.ucar.edu) for the current year up to the end of the last month. Current forecasts can be produced for the last 9 days from the current day using the GFS forecast model for boundary conditions.
