Research Highlight: ARL to Train Argentina’s National Weather Service on HYSPLIT model – September, 2008

Research Highlight: ARL to Train Argentina’s National Weather Service on HYSPLIT model Beginning September 29 through October 2, the Air Resources Laboratory (ARL) will train staff at Argentina’s National Weather Service (NWS) on the HYbrid Single-Particle Lagrangian Integrated Trajectory (HYSPLIT) transport and dispersion model to help them support operations at their Volcanic Ash Advisory Center…

Research Highlight: ARL Delivers Improved HySPLIT capabilities to NWS – May, 2008

Research Highlight: ARL Delivers Improved HySPLIT capabilities to NWS The Air Resources Laboratory (ARL) delivered model enhancements to the National Weather Service’s National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) for their operational Hybrid Single-Particle Lagrangian Integrated Trajectory (HySPLIT) transport and dispersion model. These enhancements allow for long-range dispersion beyond 4 days and for back-tracking capabilities and…

Smoke Forecasting

NOAA Smoke Forecasting System The NOAA Smoke Forecasting System integrates the NOAA National Environmental Satellite, Data and Information Service’s satellite information on the location of wildfires with NOAA National Weather Serviceweather inputs from the North American Mesoscale model and smoke dispersion simulations from the NOAA ARL HYSPLIT model to produce a daily 48-hour prediction of smoke transport and concentration. The…

Dispersion – 2

Atmospheric Dispersion The accidental or intentional release of chemical, biological, or nuclear agents, as well as ash associated with volcanic eruptions, can have significant health, safety, national security, economic, and ecological implications. ARL has an Atmospheric Dispersion Research Program that provides critical modeling and observation data to understand how, where, and when chemicals and materials…

HYSPLIT Workshops and Tutorials

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…
