* Short-term (ST) model (Ax = 9 and 3 km) uses WRF data assimilation (WRFDA) and either the WRF NOAA/NCEP-Oregon State University-Air Force Research Laboratory-NOAA/Office of Hydrology land surface model (Noah; for rural grid points) or SLUCM (for urban grid points) land surface modules for operational 72-h forecasts, for which regional and local data are assimilated.
Physical parameterizations include SLUCM; carbon bond mechanism Z (CBMZ) chemical mechanism, which includes comprehensive reactions and alterable scenarios (Zaveri et al.
