Using IDL to run ozone models for PHYS 731

I will be running various long range transport models of atmospheric constituents for an Atmospheric Dynamics class. The model I will be running is WRF (or WRF-Chem), which is the Weather Research and Forecasting Model. This is a next-generation mesoscale numerical weather prediction system designed to serve both operational forecasting and
atmospheric research needs. WRF is suitable for a broad spectrum of applications across scales ranging from meters to thousands of kilometers. I will plan on using this data and results for the class and possibly on my Ph.D. Thesis.
