The Regional Atmsopheric Modeling System (RAMS, Pielke et al.
1992) was used to simulate the spatial and temporal evolution of tracer
particles emitted in Mexico City during the IMADA/AVER field campaign
in February and March 1997. Particles are released for 12-hrs (0-12 GMT
and 12-24 GMT, corresponding to 18-6 LT and 6-18 LT), but tracked for
the entier RAMS forecast period (42 hrs).
