Please note that this page is under construction. We are documenting the 240-node cluster maya that will be available after Summer 2014. Currently, the 84-node cluster tara still operates independently, until it becomes part of maya at the end of Summer 2014. Please see the 2013 Resources Pages under the Resources tab for tara information.
Using IDL to run ozone models for PHYS 731
Raymond Hoff and John Sullivan, Department of Physics

I will be running various long range transport models of atmospheric constituents for an Atmospheric Dynamics class. The model I will be running is WRF (or WRF-Chem), which is the Weather Research and Forecasting Model. This is a next-generation mesoscale numerical weather prediction system designed to serve both operational forecasting and atmospheric research needs. WRF is suitable for a broad spectrum of applications across scales ranging from meters to thousands of kilometers. I will plan on using this data and results for the class and possibly on my Ph.D. Thesis.
