I have a question how to create lightning NO parameter file for CMAQv5.2.
I was using R and Fortran codes coming with the package of CMAQv5.1 for creating lightning NO parameters. However, I have recently got an error when I was running CMAQv5.2 with inline lightning option. It requires ‘’SLOPE” variable in lightning parameter file which my file doesn’t have. I checked LTNG_DEFN.F file to see what else it requires and I found a couple of variables that I don’t know how to create. Like INTERCEPT etc.
For now, I made a test. I compiled CMAQv.5.2 with LTNG_DEFN.F file from CMAQv5.1. And it worked with old lightning parameter file but I don’t think this is the best way!
CMAQv5.1 and CMAQv5.2 require different variables for inline lightning NO emission as I see in LTNG_DEFN.F. I went through all documentations about lightning NO emissions but I could not see.
Could you please help me to create lightning parameter file for CMAQv5.2? Maybe I missed in the documentations, but I would be grateful if you can redirect me a wiki page that describing how to create new lightning parameter file (with the variables SLOPE, INTERCEPT etc.)?
Thanks in advance for your time and help!
