The EPA Models-3 system, a third-generation air quality modeling system, is a framework which accommodates new science modules and supports their evaluation. One component of the Models-3 system is the mesoscale meteorological model (MM5) which simulates clouds, water-vapor, wind and air deposition. The authors' purpose in this paper is to investigate how they can determine the quality of simulations from MM5 using available software tools to display both simulated and measured data. This capability will help environmental scientists to modify meteorological simulations in the MM5. The authors compare the modeling data using two software tools, the McIDAS and Vis5D. Output from two variations of the MM5 are visualized along with remotely sensed data imagery from a Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES).
