I hope this email finds you well. This is Ryan, a Ph.D. student from the University of California, Irvine. Recently I am working on implementing the new windblown dust emission parameterization developed by you in CMAQ. However, I have an issue which I would like to ask you.
Q1: As described on the website,
#### 4. Use the MODIS FPAR and LAI data in the CCTM
The output file (MODIS_FPAR_LAI_daily.nc.ioapi) is ready to be used by CMAQ. Include the path to this file in the runscript:
setenv MODIS_FPAR /path/to/MODIS_FPAR_LAI_daily.nc.ioapi
After following all the steps of your guidance, I have successfully generated the MODIS_FPAR_LAI_daily.nc.ioapi file. However, I am confused about whether I only need to set the setenv MODIS_FPAR /path/to/MODIS_FPAR_LAI_daily.nc.ioapi in my run.cctm.csh script and set the setenv CTM_WB_DUST N ?
Otherwise, I should still set the setenv CTM_WB_DUST Y and generate the BELD files used for inline windblown dust emission by using the Spatial Allocator?
