Chemical boudary conditions for future

Post by isakels » Wed May 20, 2020 12:15 pm

Hello,

For initial and boundary conditions for chemicals (wrf_input+wrf_bdy) we use Mozart data using MOZBC preprocessor. If we would like to simulate a future period eg (3 days simulation in January 2030) what kind of data are available?

in https://www.acom.ucar.edu/wrf-chem/mozart.shtml data are available up to 2018

while in https://www.acom.ucar.edu/waccm/download.shtml up to ten days from today

Thank you in advance

Hi,

While I am not famiiar with the MOZBC processor, you should be able to obtain data for future simulations from one of the global model intercomparison projects (e.g., ACCMIP, CCMI, AerChemMIP). You may need to slightly modify the code (or the model output files) to ensure you are correctly providing information about the coordinate arrays and the chemical species. Further, unless the model also uses a MOZART mechanism, you may need to create your own mapping table for the species between your desired mechanism and the one from the global model.

Cheers,

Jordan
