Figure 6.25, “Tmpbeis3 input and output files” shows the input and output files for the Tmpbeis3 program. The input files include the gridded, normalized biogenic emissions from Normbeis3 (
B3GRD) and, if
BIOSW_YN = Y, then a gridded, seasonal switch file output from Metscan is required (
BIOSEASON). The biogenic speciation profiles are read from the
GSPRO file and the
GRID_CRO_2D contains the latitude and longitute for each grid cell. Tmpbeis3 reads surface pressure and radiation/cloud data from
MET_FILE1 and optionally from
BIOMET_SAME = N.
Tmpbeis3 outputs gridded, speciated, hourly biogenic emissions files in moles/hour (
B3GTS_L) and tons/hour (
B3GTS_S). The program also outputs an execution log file (
||I/O API NetCDF||Gridded, normalized biogenic emissions, output from Normbeis3|
||I/O API NetCDF||Gridded seasonal switch file containing daily data, with “0” meaning use winter normalized emissions and “1” meaning use the summer normalized emissions, produced by Metscan|
||ASCII||Speciation profiles file (do not use the same profiles used in SMOKE-BEIS2; depending on the version used, “BV309” for CB04 speciation profile or “B10C5” for CB05 speciation profile.)|

BEIS_VERSION: [default: 3.14]
Specifies which version of BEIS3 to use.
3.09: Use BEIS version 3.09.
3.14: Use BEIS version 3.14.
BG_CLOUD_TYPE: [default: 1]
Specifies which meteorological data to use.
1: Use RGND or RSD (solar radiation reaching the ground) from MM5 to calculate PAR. No other options are supported at this time.
BIOG_SPRO: [default: BV309]
Specifies the speciation profile for biogenic emissions from GSPRO.
BV309: Use BEIS version 3.09.
BV313: Use BEIS version 3.14.
BIOMET_SAME: [default: N]
Defines whether the radiation/cloud data are in the same file as the temperature data (
MET_FILE1) or in a different file (
BIOSW_YN: [default: Y]
Indicates whether to use a gridded seasonal switch file.
Y: Use gridded seasonal switch file
N: Use environment variable
SUMMER_YN to determine season
INITIAL_RUN: [default: N]
Indicates whether a particular day is the first day in a sequence of simulations.
Y: Use for the first day in a sequence of simulations. Use if the
SOILINP file does not yet exist (i.e., the soil NO calculations will not depend on the previous day’s rainfall).
N: Use for subsequent days in a sequence of simulations. Use if the
SOILINP file exists.
Note that BEIS3 will create a
SOILINP file for days subsequent to the first day in a sequence of simulations.
ISLTYP_VAR: [default: SLTYP]
Specifies the soil type variable name used if
PX_VERSION = Y.
OUTZONE: See description in Section 18.104.22.168, “Input Environment Variables”
OUT_UNITS: [default: 1]
Specifies units for the output variables.
1: moles per hour.
2: moles per second.
PRES_VAR: [default: PRSFC]
Specifies the variable name for surface pressure data to extract from
PX_VERSION: [default: N]
Indicates whether the Pleim-Xiu land surface model was used in the MM5 simulations.
Y: Use if the Pleim-Xiu land surface model was used in the MM5 simulations. Indicates that
MET_FILE1 contains soil temperature, soil moisture and soil type fields that can be used, along with rainfall data, for NO soil emission
calculations in Tmpbeis3.
N: Use if the Pleim-Xiu land surface model was not used in the MM5 simulations. Indicates that Tmpbeis3 will calculate NO soil emissions using only rainfall data.
RAD_VAR: [default: RGRND]
Specifies the variable name for radiation/cloud data to extract from either
MET_FILE1 or optional
RC_VAR: [default: RC]
Specifies the convective rainfall variable name used in
RN_VAR: [default: RN]
Specifies the non-convective rainfall variable name used in
SOILM_VAR: [default: SOIM1]
Specifies the soil moisture variable name used if
PX_VERSION = Y.
SOILT_VAR: [default: SOIT1]
Specifies the soil temperature variable name used if
PX_VERSION = Y.
SUMMER_YN: [default: Y]
Indicates whether summer or winter normalized emissions should be used; only used when
BIOSW_YN is N.
Y: Use summer normalized emissions
N: Use winter normalized emissions
TMPR_VAR: [default: TA]
Specifies the variable name for temperature to extract from
||I/O API NetCDF||Gridded, speciated, hourly biogenic emissions, in moles/hour|
||I/O API NetCDF||Gridded, speciated, hourly biogenic emissions, in tons/hour|
||I/O API NetCDF||Gridded soil restart file|
||ASCII||Log generated from executing Tmpbeis3|
The user must point to the
SOILOUT file from one day’s simulation as the
SOILINP file for the next day. The user must also decide whether to write over
SOILOUT files from previous days or create a uniquely named
SOILOUT file for each day. The latter approach is recommended if the user wishes to retain the capability to restart simulations
in the middle of a sequence of simulations.
