ARCTAS Flight Planning Products

  • Near-Real-Time MOPITT CO retrievals.
  • Chemical forecasts from MOZART-4 and CAM-Chem.
  • MOZART-4 forecasts are driven by NCEP/GFS meteorology and are available for the current day plus 3 days. Full chemistry simulations are run at T42 (2.8x2.8 deg) and CO and CO-like tracers are run at T170 (0.7x0.7 deg). CAM-Chem forecasts are based on the assimilation of meteorological observations, MOPITT CO and MODIS AOD retrievals. Full chemistry forecasts are run for 5 days at 1.9x2.5 deg, and CO tracers are run at 1x1.2 deg.
