I have had a small exchange with Dr. Ken Bowman on the model used for these simulations:
... I finally found a little time to look at your blog. I like the way that you are bringing things together.
The model that I am running is good for giving a general idea of where a release might go on the large scale. The resolution of the global winds is about 50 km. At that resolution, the model does a poor job of representing the mountainous topography of Japan. My maps should not be called an 'aerosol simulation', as they have no aerosol physics in them, just passive advection by the winds....
Finally, microsioevert.net is a new site featuring a different kind of vizualisation than we have been accustomed to,
