MUSICA vs WRF-Chem
MUSICA Version 0 is a configuration of the CAM-chem global chemistry climate model. This model development takes advantage of the Spectral Element (SE) dynamical core (which is an unstructured grid mesh based on a cubed sphere) which now allows for regional refinement (RR). The initial MUSICA-V0 configuration has a refined grid over the U.S. This configuration is now available in CESM2.2. Please see the MUSICA wiki page for more information.
Currently we are comparing MUSICAv0 with results from WRF-Chem as configured in the NCAR/ACOM near real-time forecasts. Preliminary results will be presented at the 2022 WRF/MPAS User's Workshop and we will provide the link to that presentation here soon afterwards.
