Beyond surface monitors: AMET v2.0

The Atmospheric Model Evaluation Toolkit (AMET) was initially designed at the U.S. EPA to perform production level analysis of meteorological and air quality models. AMET v2.0 is a redesign of the initial version integrating Python, R, and a MySQL database. One of the main goals of the redesign was to make it easier to evaluate the models using a wide range of data sources, and to provide flexibility to perform research and production level evaluations.

This talk will review the general approach of doing analysis through AMET and describe some of the new capabilities of the tool in version 2.0. In particular, we will focus on the ability to incorporate new data sources such as satellite data and field campaigns into the underlying structure and the increased ability to provide more sophisticated analyses across these new data sources and across multiple modeling scenarios.
