ClearSky: status and near-term objectives. Joe Vaughan Charleston Ramos Brian Lamb. Topics. ClearSky Plume Rise Field Studies Ensemble Effort Current Efforts Culture of Use Task 2 assessment NASA ROSES. ClearSky Plume Rise Field Study. Objective: Evaluate CALPUFF plume rise
2 underestimated plume height, slightly
2 - 3 overestimated plume height
Newer emission parameters increase plume rise
This motivated an Ensemble experiment! Heitkamp found that 12-km ECS was slightly better than 4-km original system. So, what about a 4-km ensemble?
ECY Contract Task 2 Assessment:How to get ClearSky ag-burning results into the regional PM results?
ClearSky and its use don’t necessarily provide realistic ag-burning emissions, nor PM2.5 results!
So we’ve proposed a 2004 burn season re-analysis to build met-forecast driven inference rules for ag-burning emissions for AIRPACT.
