ATom: Global Modeling Initiative (GMI) Chemical Transport Model (CTM) output

This dataset contains Global Modeling Initiative (GMI) Chemical Transport Model (CTM) outputs from the four Atom campaigns. GMI simulations of the ATom flight periods have a horizontal resolution of 1.0 x 1.25 degrees, with output every 15 minutes. The ICARTT files are generated by spatially and temporally interpolating the output to the ATom flight track. Vertical interpolation is linear in log-pressure. The netCDF files provide three-dimensional (3D) GMI simulation output for the region surrounding the flight track every 15 minutes at the original model resolution. GMI is a 3-D CTM that includes full chemistry for both the troposphere and stratosphere. GMI simulates the concentrations of many of the species measured during ATom.
