Unformatted text preview: (7) in cartesian geometry, while in spherical geometry it is: r = R E arccos [sin Î¸ j sin Î¸ i + cos Î¸ j cos Î¸ i cos( Î» jÎ» i )] (8) where R E is the Earth radius. Â±or the present problem we assume that Ë† q i remains constant as the blobs are carried by the wind. The concentration of q should be computed every 12 hours over a grid that spans a domain that encompasses a wide swath around the particle trajectories. Choose Ïƒ i = 1 km and Ë† q i = 1 for all particles. The concentration q ( x j ) should be computed on a set of points laid out on 1 / 8 degree grid. Note that the particles should be tracked for a period of 7 days. It is probably best if the output of q be written in binary form using the Â²leio module. The data can then be read in matlab with the help of fortread.m. 5...
