HYSPLIT Workshops and Tutorials

In the past, the ARL HYSPLIT team hosted a 4-day workshop that was designed to provide the user with hands-on instruction on how to install, run, and interpret the results of the PC/Mac-based version of the HYSPLIT model.  The materials that were used during the workshop are now online and videos have also been posted that include a HYSPLIT expert leading the user through the training.  These are now located at:


In 2019, the HYSPLIT workshop will no longer be held in-person.  Instead, an agenda will be created that will guide the user during 4 weeks through each section of the online training materials with each week focusing on several sections of the training materials (such as installation, meteorology, trajectories, dispersion, etc).  This will allow the user to learn the materials at their own pace and time.  During the week users will be able to submit questions to the HYSPLIT Forum that will be answered by HYSPLIT experts during the week.  On the following Monday two live video sessions will be held, one at 8 am EDT (12 UTC) and one at 4 pm EDT (20 UTC), that will allow users to ask questions or if there were many questions during the week on a particular topic, the instructor will review that topic.  Announcements of this guided training will be posted in a box to the right in the spring of 2019, with the live sessions tentatively planned for the Monday’s in June (users will start the last week of May).

The next on-line HYSPLIT workshop is tentatively planned to start the last week of May, 2019.  See the discussion to the left and further details will be announced here later.
