Forecasts and Near Real Time (NRT) Products

Daily chemical forecasts are now being provided with the Whole Atmosphere Community Climate Model (WACCM) configuration of CESM2. 10-day forecasts are being run, driven by NASA/GMAO GEOS-5 meteorological forecasts. Fire emissions are updated daily with near-real-time  FINNv1 emissions and used for the following 10-day forecast. Anthropogenic emissions are from the CMIP6 inventory. The chemistry scheme is the MOZART TSMLT1 chemical mechanism with MAM4 aerosols (see Liu et al. (GMD, 2015)).
