IWDW Analysis Products
- 1. Overview
- 2. Task 1: Time Series Plots (11Nov2014)
- 3. Task 2: Visualization tool development (Feb 2015)
The first plot to work on will be the time series plots to display the model vs. obs results at specific monitors in the modeling domain. A database export from the UNC AMET instance for this project that includes paired data for all of the FRM networks is available on Viking:
Use these data to prototype the analysis database and time series display tool. After getting the time series display to work we will move on to creating other display products. This dump includes both model and obs data, however you may choose to just use the model results as the IDW already include a database of monitoring data. Included here are also lat lon coordinates and monitor IDs, which should make cross-referencing with the existing obs database fairly easy
Note that a slick display for creating the plots will be a map of monitoring locations that a user can click on to select which monitor they would like to create a time series for. This would then kick you into a configuration window to choose the simulation, species, and time period to plot
Below are links to two dynamic tools that display model-to-obs datasets, and emissions inputs for the WAQS modeling platforms. These tools provide the bulk of the time series functionality laid out in Task 1, above. Please use this wiki to enter comments about these tools, and to suggest how they might be modified to produce the plot types in Section 1, above.
emissions review tool
- 2/5/15 revised to include county-level SCC tabular output
- 2/17/15 - added how-to wiki
- In table view below graph, add a column that shows the number of data points used to calculate average if n>1.
- Model-to-obs: allow for multiple site selection and dynamic averaging.
- It would be slick to add a map selection feature so users could select groups of sites.
- Provide other site selection filters, such as high elevation in CO, proximity to C1A, etc.
- add scatter chart type (Pending upgrade to latest ChartFX version and Analysis add-on)
- 1) DONE - units on the graph
- 2) help link to DW metadata and reports in the selection box area
- 3) DONE - improved labeling on the graph (legend with descriptive name of each source shown [Source Category name from selection doesn’t carry forward so it appears in legend], descriptive title on X and Y axes, colors, et cetera).
- Add source categories for biogeneic, WBD, fires
- DONE - Capitalize the source category names: e.g. “air, locomotive, marine" should be "Aircraft, Locomotive, Marine”
- Roll up chemical species modes to base species (e.g. “CO in Exhaust” should be CO or Carbon Monoxide and thrown in the bin with all of the other sources of CO.)
- DONE - Remove the Non-SESARM prefixes in the descriptions of the sectors
- DONE - We also talked about drilling down to the SCC level in these charts. So when you click in a county you would get a list of the emissions by SCC in that county. You could only get county level SCC summaries for one county.
- Tabulated data below the chart. Show the data displayed in the chart as a table
- Tom - I understand and generally agree with Zac’s comments. I don’t understand the comment about “…Non-SESARM prefixes…”. I think it is likely that we will need to be able to show that different groups originate emissions estimates and it may make sense to bring that info along to the selection tool and onto the graph and associated data table.
- Zac - Tom, the non-SESARM tag is an artifact of the SEMAP project. SESARM developed their own inventories for their states for that project, so we needed to distinguish between the SESARM and the non-SESARM inventories.
For the WAQS project all of the inventories with the exception of the O&G basins in the three-states came from EPA. We do distinguish between the WAQS O&G and non-WAQS O&G data, where we added the descriptor “(Across the USA)” for the non-WAQS inventories. I think we’ll need to change that a bit, but we do have the capacity to identify that these are two distinct sources of O&G data. For the rest of the sectors, which all came from EPA, we may be able to add an ID to the sector name like “(NEI2011v1)” if you think that it would add value to these plots.
- Tom - Distinction also applies to fire, biogenics, mobile is not the same either.
- Zac - You’re right, and we also have these documented in the modeling protocols and elsewhere. How much metadata about these emissions results do you want to display on the tool? My inclination is to keep the tool simple and then defer to the documentation of the runs if people want details about what “Biogenic” means in terms of simulation WAQS Base08b. If you would like for this tool to display more detail about what went into the different sectors, let me know and I can try to provide concise inventory IDs to display along with the sector names.
- Mapping for parameter list box:
CO = Carbon Monoxide + CO in Exhaust
HONO = Nitrous Acid + HONO in Exhaust
NH3 = Ammonia + NH3 in Exhaust
NO = Nitrogen Oxide + NO in Exhaust
NO2 = Nitrogen Dioxide + NO2 in Exhaust
NOx = “NO + NO2” + NOx in Exhaust
PMC = “PM Coarse” + “Primary PM Course (PM10-PM2.5)
PM2.5 = “PM Fine” + “Total Primary PM2.5”
SO2 = Sulfur Dioxide + SO2 in Exhaust
VOC = Volatile Organic Compounds + Volatile Organic Compounds from
Refueling + Volatile Organic Compounds in Evaporated Fuel + Volatile Organic Compounds in Exhaust
- Exclude these from the list:
Terpenes (keep Terpene)
All Total Organic Gas species (there are 4 of them)
PM2.5 from Brakes
PM2.5 from Tires
Primary Organic Aerosol
All Primary PM Coarse species
All PrimaryPM2.5 species
Unknown Organic Compound
Unreactive Organic Compound
Nonvolatile Organic Compounds
Xylene SOA Precursor
Toluene SOA Precursor
- For the Source Categories, roll up and/or change the names to the following:
MOVES Onroad Mobile (Off-Network) = Non-SESARM, USA Onroad mobile sources (Parked Vehicles) + Onroad Mobile Sources (Parked Vehicles) in California or Texas + Refueling associated with Onroad Mobile Sources (Parked Vehicles) + Non-SESARM, USA Onroad Mobile Sources (Idling Mode)
MOVES Onroad Mobile (On-Network) = Non-SESARM, USA Onroad mobile sources (Traveling Mode) + Onroad Mobile Sources (Traveling Mode) in California or Texas + Refueling associated with Onroad Mobile Sources (Traveling Mode)
WAQS Oil & Gas Area Sources = Oil & Gas Area Sources
NEI Oil & Gas Area Sources = Oil & Gas Area Sources (across U.S.A)
WAQS Oil & Gas Point Sources = Oil & Gas Point Sources
NEI Oil & Gas Point Sources = Oil & Gas Point Sources (across U.S.A)
CEM Point = Peaking Units associated with Continuous Emissions Monitors (CEMs) + Point Sources with Continuous Emissions Monitors (CEMs)
non-CEM Point = Point Sources (no Continuous Emissions Monitors)
