Appel, W., K. Foley, C. Hogrefe, H. Pye, AND B. Murphy. Updates to the CMAQ Post Processing and Evaluation Tools for 2016. 2016 CMAS Conference, Chapel Hill, NC, October 24 - 26, 2016.

Impact/Purpose:

The National Exposure Research Laboratory (NERL) Computational Exposure Division (CED) develops and evaluates data, decision-support tools, and models to be applied to media-specific or receptor-specific problem areas. CED uses modeling-based approaches to characterize exposures, evaluate fate and transport, and support environmental diagnostics/forensics with input from multiple data sources. It also develops media- and receptor-specific models, process models, and decision support tools for use both within and outside of EPA.

Description:

In the spring of 2016, the evaluation tools distributed with the CMAQ model code were updated and new tools were added to the existing set of tools. Observation data files, compatible with the AMET software, were also made available on the CMAS website for the first time with the updated tools. In addition, in the fall of 2016 a new version of the AMET software will be released, which includes the elimination of the PERL based scripts, updated functionality, various bug fixes, and efforts to streamline the installation and general overall function of the software. This presentation will discuss the updated and new CMAQ evaluation tools available, as well as discuss the major changes in AMET 1.3.?
