E-mail Print PDF


A Tutorial Workshop on the use of the WRF-Chem atmospheric model was successfully conducted at the headquarters of the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) in Kathmandu, Nepal. Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) is the latest generation open-source meteorological model designed to serve both atmospheric research and operational weather forecasting needs. It was developed collaboratively by several agencies in the United States, including National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)/NCEP, NOAA/ESRL, and the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), and has been used by over 20,000 users in 130 countries. WRF-Chem is a version of WRF that simulates emission, turbulent mixing, transport, transformation, and fate of atmospheric trace gases and aerosols. It is particularly well-suited for simulating or forecasting atmospheric conditions where there are interactions between atmospheric chemistry and meteorology, such as when air pollutants affect raindrop formation or when haze affects atmospheric heating and cooling. There are 3,000 registered users of WRF-Chem worldwide.
