SMOKE nonpoint output format for point sources

Hello everyone,

I’m using SMOKE and NEI-2015 to create emission files. I know that SMOKE has different outputs for point sources (stackgroup+inline).

I was wondering if there is any way I can have point sources (including ptfire) output in nonpoint output format (3D format: time, rows, columns).
I tried changing ELEVPOINT_DAILY to ‘N’. However, it didn’t help.

Does anyone have any idea how can I do that? Should I use ‘smk_ar_annual_emf.csh’ instead of ‘smk_pt_annual_onetime_emf.csh’?
Thank you in advance for your help.


It is possible to output point sector emissions as 2-D gridded emissions (meaning that everything is forced to layer 1). The airports and othptdust sectors are run in this way.

To create 2-D gridded emissions for a point sector, change/add these script settings:

  • setenv SMK_ELEV_METHOD “0”

  • setenv INLINE_MODE “off”

  • setenv SMK_SPECELEV_YN “N”

  • setenv MRG_LAYERS_YN “N”
