FLEXPART is a widely used Lagrangian Particle Dispersion Model (LPDM) developed by Andreas Stohl and colleagues, now at the Norwegian Institute for Air Research in the Department of Atmospheric and Climate Research. See official FLEXPART website at NILU.

Building on Version 8.0, Dominik Brunner (Empa) has developed a new version of FLEXPART adapted to the COSMO model. This wiki is intended to document the software and to inform on updates.

The most important recent changes are an upgrade to the f90 library of the grib_api (thanks to Pirmin Kaufmann, MeteoSwiss) and an OpenMP parallelization (thanks to Oli Fuhrer and Pirmin Kaufmann, Meteoswiss).

Note: FLEXPART COSMO uses the GRIB API with MeteoSwiss extensions. In order to work properly, you therefore need to add the following files to the GRIB API subdirectory share/grib_api/definitions/grib1/:

  • local.215.def
  • localConcepts/MCH/
