The model versions used for the different experiments are often not easily comparable. New model versions should be documented regularly to establish a state of the art comparison yearly. For this purpose AeroCom offers a semi-automatic platform with visualization via the AeroCom webinterface. Evaluation with surface observations and Aeronet observations will complete the documentation of emissions, removal, burden, lifetime of the major aerosol species.
Deadline for model submissions to be anlaysed before the Frascati AeroCom workshop: 15.September, on the condition that formatting and naming of files follows the instructions below.
Experiment name: AP3-CTRL2015
Output requested (2D fields, Monthly averages, preferably year 2010 meteorology):
EMI Emissions: BC, OA, SO2, DMS, NOx, VOC, DUST, SS
LOAD Column Loads: BC, OA, SO4, NO3, DUST, SS
SCONC Surface concentrations: BC, OA, SO4, NO3, DUST, SS
DEP Total Deposition: BC, OA, SO4, NO3, DUST, SS
OD550 Aerosol optical depth @550nm: AER, OA, SO4, NO3, DUST, SS
The directory /media/scratch/incoming/AEROCOM-P3-AUTO-UPLOAD allows for automatic incorporation into the AeroCom database and workup. Uploaded files are processed automatically by the AeroCom tools and transfered into the AeroCom phase III data directory.
If correct in format and with correct filenames, results uploaded here will be processed over night and appear after few days as image catalogue on http://aerocom.met.no/cgi-bin/aerocom/surfobs_annualrs.pl?PROJECT=AEROCOM&MODELLIST=AEROCOM-Phase-III
Short Recipe (Long version: https://wiki.met.no/aerocom/data_submission)
1) Name files according to HTAPII/AeroComPhaseIII standards. One file per year and variable
2) Check for cf compliance some files (http://aerocom-test.met.no/upload)
3a) obtain account on aerocom-users server
3) create directory on aerocom-users server:
Use exactly the same model name as used for file names. Attention to lower&upper case!!
4) Put files directly into this “renamed” directory.
