ARL Weekly News – July 5, 2019
Allison Ring and Alice Crawford developed a prototype web page which produces HYSPLIT trajectory runs based on alerts produced by the volcanic cloud monitoring system at NESDIS-CIMSS (the National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service – Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies). More information on the alerts can be found at https://volcano.ssec.wisc.edu/auth/login?redirect_to=%2F and the prototype web page with HYSPLIT trajectories can be found at https://www.ready.noaa.gov/hysplitash-bin/vaac1a.py?. The web page is the one of the first steps in developing a system which will incorporate satellite information on volcanic clouds into the HYSPLIT modeling system.
Alice Crawford extended the experimental ensemble fire-smoke HYSPLIT products from the CONUS to Alaska. The products can be found at https://www.ready.noaa.gov/smoke-bin/ensmoke.py.
