- 2011b Future wiki - send announcement to Cooperators?
4. Tool development
- MPE checklist - add links to IWDW resources

5. Other items
- update on AMET configuration at CIRA
- Zac will clean up 2011b Base CAMx output files; restart CMAQ output transfer
- Zac will let Rodger know when he is finished with 12 and 4km wiki entries for 2011b Future Case emissions modeling; Rodger will send out note to Cooperators to let them know wiki is available and emissions modeling is complete.
- no new data request since the last meeting
- Rodger and Zac met to identify graphical MPE products on the IWDW. Most products are currently available on either the plot browser, wiki, or IWDW ERT or model-to-obs tool. An outcome will be a version of the checklist that "indexes" related resources on the IWDW. A couple feature enhancements were also identified that could be developed without too much effort.
- One was addition of tabular "outstat" files with model-to-obs metrics. These are calculated as monthly averages of MPE metrics across the 4 and 12km domain, or by States within those domains, using site specific AMET output files. Shawn will look into creating a sortable table based on the outstat files containing the domain and state averaged metrics.
- The second was adding source category and SCC filtering to Dustin's spatial emissions GIS prototype. This would mimic the drill down capabilities of the current ERT, however provide a spatial display of emissions magnitude for a given selection. Dustin will look into making these modifications.
- Rodger will work to make an HTML version of the indexed checklist. The intent will be to identify and describe IWDW resources across available modeling platforms.
- Dustin gave an update on configuring AMET
on a virtual Linux host running on his desktop machine.He was able to configure and run AMET locally, and is currently comparingoutput filesgenerated from files containingmodel-to-obs pairings to plots generatedby UNC-IE. His next step will beto generate pairings using thecompare codein the AMET package. He also helped createa workingAMET environment versionon Rodger's local VM.A key to Dustin's success was using Ansible to store configuration settings, and heoffered to share the Ansible configuration with Zac.
- Ralph reiterated a decision from the modeling workgroup to use the IWDW as a repository for historical modeling studies (e.g Crestone, CARMMS/Mancos
