National Weather Service ETA Model Forecasts from the 1995 Southern Oxidants Study (SOS) Nashville/Middle Tennessee Ozone Study Data Base
Entry ID: sos_m7


Summary
Abstract: M7 - National Weather Service ETA Model Forecasts

The Southern Oxidants Study (SOS) conducted a major field research
campaign in Nashville/Middle Tennessee area in June and July 1994 and
1995. The goal of this study was to improve scientific understanding
of the processes that control the production and distribution of ozone
in the troposphere.

The ETA 48-hour daily weather forecasts provided by the National
Weather Service for June 14 through Juky 20, 1995 were post-processed
by the NOAA Air Resources Laboratory to provide the grid structure
required for the initialization and four dimensional data
assimiliation (FDDA) executed in the Regional Atmospheric Modeling
System (RAMS). RAMS was run each day to predict the passive pollution
dispersion over the Nashville/Middle Tennessee region, but can be
rerun for any other location in the Southeast using the same
post-processed ETA grids. Both post-processed ETA grids and RAMS
outputs are archived for the period above.

The study was conducted from June 14, 1995 through July 20, 1995.

The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) was the coordinator for the 1995
Southern Oxidants Study Nashville/Middle Tennessee Ozone Study.
