The Intercontinental Chemical Transport Experiment B (INTEX-B) and Megacities Impact on Regional and Global Environment (MIRAGE) field campaigns are taking place from March to May, 2006. Center for Global & Regional Environmental Research at the University of Iowa, is providing daily chemical weather forecasts in support of these experiments.

We have three coordinated forecasts produced daily. University of Iowa's STEM-2k3 regional chemical transport model are performed in 60km primary domain and 12km nested domain. We also have 60km tracer products. The Weather Research & Forecasting model (WRF) provides meteorological fields to drive these calculations.

If you want to study current or previous scenarios instead of flight planning, previous forecasts may be more helpful.
