HYSPLIT Workshop and PC Tutorial

Each year, usually in the spring, the ARL HYSPLIT team hosts a workshop at the NOAA Center for Weather and Climate Prediction in College Park, Maryland. This workshop is designed to provide the user with hands-on insruction on how to install, run, and interpret the results of the PC-based version of the HYSPLIT model. No prior experience is necessary, however, a background in meteorology or atmospheric dispersion would benefit the user as the material is presented rather quickly in order to provide as many examples of the capabilities as possible.

Announcements and registration details will be posted in a box to the right several months prior to the next workshop.

2018 AMS HYSPLIT Short Course

A 1 day HYSPLIT short course will be given on Sunday, January 7, 2018, as part of theĀ 98th Annual Meetingthis link opens in a new window of the American Meteorological Society (AMS) in Austin, Texas. The short course titled, “Using PC/Mac-based HYSPLIT for Basic Trajectory and Dispersion Applications,” is designed for novice HYSPLIT users and will be focused on the basic trajectory and particle dispersion calculation with each participant using their own PC or Mac (no Tablets/Ipad). Topics will include meteorological data sources required for the computations, the trajectory calculation, sources of trajectory error, and the use of multiple trajectories including cluster analysis. The generation of multiple particle trajectories to compute dispersion patterns and air concentrations will be reviewed, including the uncertainty introduced by the limitations of the meteorological data.
