Description

This dataset includes hourly output from the WRF-Chem simulation model for North America at a resolution of 27 km for 2016-06-29 through 2019-07-31. WRF-Chem is the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model coupled with Chemistry. The output provides baseline conditions for comparison to data from ACT-America airborne campaigns conducted to study atmospheric CO2 and CH4 from 2016 to 2019. The WRF-Chem (v. 3.6.1) model was driven by meteorological conditions and sea-surface temperatures. The output includes 50 vertical layers up to atmospheric pressure of 50 hPa with 20 levels in the lowest 1 km. It provides information for understanding the fluxes and atmospheric transport of carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), and ethane (C2H6).
