Tutorial Purpose

    The purpose of this web page is to assist the users of WRF-Chem in the atmospheric chemistry community to learn

  1. how to compile the WRF-Chem model code,
  2. use the emissions utilities to produce input data ,
  3. and run a WRF-Chem simulation.

    In the WRF-Chem tutorial the students will learn where and how to turn on namelist options to

  1. simulate dust lofting, transport and settling,
  2. include anthropogenic and biogenic emissions, and
  3. turn on the coupling between dynamics, radiation and chemistry.

    In the WRF-Chem emissions tutorial the students will lean to use some of the available external utility programs to generate emissions input data for a model simuation.

    To provide additional details and aid in the learning process, links to agendas and presentations from previous tutorial sessions as well as the WRF-Chem User's guide and the Emissions guide are made available.
