Running CMAQ

The recommended way to run CMAQ is through the submission of a file describing the desired simulation. This file describes all the physical aspects of the simulation plus several computational parameters. One example file using the parameters for the U.S. Southeast (2016) benchmark is included in the image. 

To run this benchmark in a D32as_v4 VM with 16 cores, the command sequence would be:

  • $ cd /home/wrfuser/CMAQ/CCTM/scripts
  • $ ./CMAQ533_ncores16_12SE1.sh

This assumes that  the username for the VM is wrfuser.
