Description

This dataset provides Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) Stochastic Time-Inverted Lagrangian Transport (STILT) particle trajectory data and footprint products for two receptors located in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, for July 2013 - December 2014. Meteorological fields from version 3.6.1 of the Weather Research and Forecasting model are used to drive STILT. STILT applies a Lagrangian particle dispersion model backwards in time from a measurement location (the "receptor" location), to create the adjoint of the transport model in the form of a "footprint" field. The footprint, with units of mixing ratio (ppm) per surface flux (umol m-2 s-1), quantifies the influence of upwind surface fluxes on CO2 and CH4 concentrations measured at the receptor and is computed by counting the number of particles in a surface-influenced volume and the time spent in that volume. Footprints are provided for the two receptors at two temporal and spatial scales: three days of surface influence over the whole North American coverage area at 1-degree resolution and 24 hours of surface influence within a smaller region close to the measurement locations ('near field') at 0.1-degree resolution.
