, Carlos Gonzalez,


This dataset presents two NetCDF files with three-dimensional and four-dimensional gridded values of meteorological and air quality variables obtained through simulation using the WRF-Chem version 3.7 model. The files present the results of two air quality simulations performed for a region in the tropical Andes, each one using a different biogenic emission inventory. In addition, the dataset contains the information needed to replicate the elaboration of the local emission inventory using the BIGA, and the gridded anthropogenic and biogenic emission inventories employed for simulation.


Steps to reproduce

This dataset was generated using the Model of Emissions of Gases and Aerosols from Nature (MEGAN), the Biogenic Altitudinal Gradient Model (BIGA) and the Weather Research and Forecast model with Chemistry Version 3.7 (WRF-Chem 3.7).
