The CALPUFF modeling system is comprised of CALMET, CALPUFF, geophysical data preprocessors, meteorological data preprocessors, and several postprocessors designed to operate on CALMET and CALPUFF output files.
The downloads available here focus individually on each component, providing a brief overview of the purpose, sample input and output files, the executable, and the FORTRAN code (in most cases). The sample input and output files are interrelated among the processors, producing a demonstration of the full system. This demonstration involves a single application to a hypothetical source, using real meteorological and geophysical data.
The files for this demonstration are packaged by individual processor. There is typically a single ZIP file for each, but in the cases where large input data files (e.g., land use or terrain) are part of the demonstration, separate ZIP files for the data are provided. To limit the amount of data transferred, please download the large data files only if they have been updated since your last download.
Create a directory C:\CALPUFF\Demo (or one of your choosing) on your system as the root for the demonstration directories. Then download the ZIP files to that directory. These ZIP files contain the directory structure for the demonstration. If you are using a Windows-based utility to unzip these files, double-click on each in turn to begin a standard installation. If you are using a DOS version of PKUNZIP, be sure to use the "-d" switch to unpack the directory structure. For example, to expand CTGPROC.ZIP type: pkunzip -d ctgproc [return].
These files should be expanded once the system has been installed (i.e. after the GUI, utilities, and initial test cases are loaded to disk).
To expand all of the demonstration files, make sure that at least 200 MB of disk space is available. If you have do not have enough space, you may expand and process the files for each processor in turn. There are several large input data files (e.g. the USGS CTG files) that may be deleted once the processing is completed.
The demonstration is best approached in the following sequence: Geophysical Preprocessors, Meteorological Preprocessors, Main Models (CALMET, CALPUFF), and Postprocessors. Process the terrain data first, and then land use, etc. All of the processing should be done in the individual subdirectories. Go to each in turn, and read the README.TXT file. This file contains the documentation for each processor. Note that all of the processing relates to the same application except the examples for BUOY.
Once you have gone through the demonstration, you may delete the data files used in the demonstration, but keep the executables, documentation, and the control files for regular use.
