WRF_FirstUser (runs meteorology and chemistry with WRF/Chem, for basic cases).


About WRF_FirstUser:

The WRF_FirstUser are 3 (three) SHELL SCRIPT programs, which was developed to assist beginner users in atmospheric modeling. WRF_FirstUser helps to make simplified simulations in urban areas (emission of pollutants by mobile sources).
The WRF_FirstUser is attached for the tests:
1 - configure_model.csh (Configure the linux environment, to activate the executables);
2 - run_model.csh (runs WRF model, meteorological and chemistry);
3 - results_model.csh (generates figure of CO Concentration combined with wind speed and direction).
The emissions inventory was based on studies done for São Paulo city, which considers urban areas as emitters of pollutants by mobile and fixed sources. Emissions increase according to the size of the city.
In summary, I created a fortran program that reads the LU_INDEX variable from the wrfinput_d0X file, identifies the urban area and simulates the emission of pollutants (E_CO, E_NO, E_VOC, E_PM, E_SO2), the incorporated effects: More emission in the center of urban areas, hourly emissions changes, timezone, weekend effect.
