Mission:The mission of the atmospheric chemistry working group is to guide the development of the capability to simulate chemistry and aerosols— online as well as offline— within the WRF model. The WRF-Chem model has the option to simulate the coupling between dynamics, radiation, and chemistry. Uses include forecasting chemical-weather, testing air pollution abatement strategies, planning and forecasting for field campaigns, analyzing measurements from field campaigns, and the assimilation of satellite and in-situ chemical measurements.
