C ombinedA erosolT rajectoryT ool, CATT Status Report on Tools Development and Use Project supported by the Inter-RPO Data Analysis Workgroup Project Manager: Serpil Kayin, MARAMA Technical Project Officer: Rich Poirot, Vermont DEP Project performed by CAPITA, Rudolf Husar, PI July 2004 Trajectory Browser Kitty: Simple CATT CATT Transport Analyzer

  • Trajectory Aggregator Tool Inputs:
    • Receptor location.Single location; multiple receptors; weighed multi-site
    • Receptor times.Time range for each site
    • Temporal filter/weight conditions.Date range; specific dates; weights for each date
    • Trajectory input files.Pre-computed or on the fly calculated (e.g. HYSPLIT, ATAD etc)
    • Trajectory aggregation metrics.Endpoint counts, residence time, incr. probability
  • TAT Output:
    • XMLGrid, GIS layers, ASCII point
    • Renderedcontour imagesof transport metric

Chemical filter Accomplished through queries to chemical data sets. The output a list of qualified dates for a specific location (s). Trajectory aggregator Receives the list of dates for a specific location Performs the trajectory/restime aggregation Yield transport pattern for specific receptor location and chemical filter conditions. 4. The CATT Family

  • IMPROVE-ATAD Trajectory Browser Tool
    • This tool is used to find the airmass history foran IMPROVE site and time
  • TrajAgg - Trajectory Aggregator ( Grid )
    • Uses user-defined filter (locations and dates) to aggregate trajectories
  • Kitty Simple Combined Aerosol Trajectory Tool
    • Limited filtering and aggregation for IMPROVE-ATAD data
  • CATT- Combined Aerosol Trajectory Tool (Threshold, Percentile, Ratio)
    • Full featured chemical-transport exploration tool

5. IMPROVE-ATAD Trajectory Browser Tool This tool sows the backtrajectory for any day (1988-2003) and ATAD lactation (432 sites, 177 IMPROVE, 256 STN)

  • Click on location or select from site location list
  • Enter date into the Time box or use the navigation buttons, ||

TrajAgg- Trajectory Aggregator User Defined Filter This tool performs weighed trajectory aggregation using user-supplied filter The filter can be submitted as a comma separated CSV table, shown here The aggregator returns either trajectory or weighed contour plots 7. Kitty Simple CATT Combined Aerosol Trajectory Tool

  • All the VIEWS chemical parameters available for filtering
  • Filter settable as Parameter-Operator-Threshold, e.g. SOILf >20 or SO4 30 ug/m3 Dust > 1.8 ug/m3 Dust > 3.7 ug/m3 Dust > 1.8 ug/m3 Dust > 15 ug/m3 Dust > 7.5 ug/m3 14. SO4 Multi-Site CATT 15. Incremental Probability Maps Upper 10 percentile, Big Bend, Jun, Jul Aug
    • Incremental Transport Probabilities for Big Bend indicate southerly transport of species, except sulfate
    • Conspicuously, in the summer, nitrate is also transported from the south

    16. Incremental Probability Maps Upper 10 percentile, Brigantine, Jun, Jul Aug

    • Incremental Transport Probabilities for Brigantine indicate westerly transport of species
    • Soil is preferentially transported from southwest; nitrate is transported from the northwest

    17. Project Status: Extensions to the CATTAnalysis Tool

    • Connectivity to VIEWS chemical datasets
      • Done
    • Flexible import of pre-calculated back-trajectory data
      • Done for ATAD
    • Additional chemical filtering and trajectory aggregation algorithms
      • Done for some, may add some filters
    • Spatial interpolation and rendering (contouring) of point data
      • Done
    • CATT server hardware and software installation and maintenance
      • Done
