Joint WRF / MPAS Users’ Workshop 2022

  • What is MUSICA? How does MUSICA compare to WRF-Chem? And going to higher resolution by Wenfu Tang.

AeroCom / AeroSAT Workshop 2022

  • On October 10-14, 2022 Michael Schulz (U. of Oslo), Alma Hodzic (NCAR), and collaborators organized two 2-hr sessions during the AeroCom workshop to discuss ideas and foster collaborations for the development of community aerosol-chemistry interfaces within weather and climate models. The meeting sought to engage the European aerosol modeling community in the effort of building the GeneralIzed Aerosol/chemistry iNTerface (GIANT) project that has been started in the US.
  • Participants reviewed the existing solutions used to separate aerosol code from host models, and identified the need to build stand-alone libraries of aerosol modules, well-defined interfaces between aerosol modules and host models, and unit and science testing to provide both portable and robust aerosol code.
  • The next steps will consist of developing software engineering solutions, unit testing, and organizing additional Hackathons withing the GIANT project.
